MG-GY 9433 Qualitative Research Methods

3 Credits
The course covers methods that allow students to enter natural social settings to capture data about human behavior in the actual contexts in which people pursue their daily lives. These methods include observation and interviewing. The emphasis is on studying close-up the worlds of other people. The course helps participants learn to make sense of data inductively, i.e., from the bottom up. This course is not about hypothesis testing. Rather, it is about building grounded theory. The focus is on coding and categorizing qualitative data (observational notes and interview transcripts). Students learn to go beyond journalistic description of data and use the analysis that characterizes good inductive social science.

Prerequisite(s): Doctoral standing or instructor’s permission.
Note: Independent Research
