The course is aimed at integrating specific qualitative research methods, including the use of interviews, focus groups, and content analysis, as well as the analysis of the resulting data. Students are required to work on several small weekly assignments that allow them to practice specific methods and foster development of qualitative research skills. They are also required to present examples of qualitative research in class, illustrating both research design and data analysis. By the end of the semester, students will understand how to form research questions appropriate for qualitative methods, integrate qualitative and quantitative methods, and use the tools of qualitative data collection and analysis.
