CRP 6201 - Qualitative Methods

Fall or spring. Offered alternate years. 3 credits.

Co-meets with CRP 3201 .


Qualitative research has developed as a field of inquiry and a method that cuts across disciplines and subjects. It contains many methodological tensions and privileges no single set of practices over another. Designed for students of the built and natural environments, this class will explore methods that help us understand space and place, its use and meaning for people over time, and in the current context. This course is designed around field work in selected sites on the Cornell campus or in surrounding areas. Students learn to use a range of methods appropriately. These include archival research, observation, behavior mapping, ethnography, interviewing, surveying, and visual methods in the context of researcher-driven and participatory research modes.
