Qualitative Methods

This course provides graduate students in the International Education program an intensive introduction to qualitative methods used in international and comparative education and the social sciences. It is intended to provide an overview of particular techniques in research design, data collection, and data analysis most commonly associated with qualitative research. Through semester-long group projects, students get hands-on experience with qualitative research such that they leave the course able to understand and critique qualitative studies and conduct their own qualitative inquiries.
