SOC 5080 - [Qualitative Methods]

Spring. 4 credits.

Next offered 2014-2015. Co-meets with SOC 4080 .

M. Berezin.

This course aims to acquaint students with the practice of non-quantitative research methods.  It does not offer a laundry list of techniques, rather it asks students to think about how particular methods are more or less suited to the answering of particular types of research questions.  The course is divided into four parts: (1) a general discussion of theory, methods and evidence in social science; (2) a series of readings and exercises on particular methods; (3) an analysis of full-length works to see how they were put together; (4) discussion of student projects.
