About this course

The course is designed with the goal of introducing students to different qualitative methodologies that may be used by social scientists and policy researchers (i.e., case studies, content analysis, survey research, etc).

Students should be well-equipped to understand the methodologies employed in political, social, and economic research, and to evaluate the use of these methods in answering questions of a political nature.

Additionally, after completing the module, students should feel equipped to use these methodologies (if appropriate) in their own dissertations and in their subsequent careers.

This course will be assessed by a 3,000 word assignment that students will complete outside of class.
