This course is designed to provide graduate students in the social sciences with a review of qualitative research methods, exposure to writings from the field, opportunities to try their hand at practicing fieldwork, and feedback on a proposed study that employs qualitative methods. This course is the first of a three-course sequence and focuses more on theoretical approaches to various types of qualitative research and practical techniques of various methods. There will be some emphasis on study design, case selection, and field notes. There will be little attention to coding, analysis, writing and presenting findings.
