The seminar will introduce students to qualitative methods, which are those research techniques concerned broadly with non-mathematical, naturally occurring and non-experimental research practices that look to uncover the meanings and significance of the wide variety of evidence that social researchers collect. Qualitative research includes a broad range of approaches and research techniques. The purpose of the course is to introduce students to a number of the most commonly used approaches and techniques.
Upon completing the course students will acquire a basic overview of qualitative methods, how to utilise these methods, the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Students will understand the relevance of methodology for academic writing and the relationship between methodology and theory. Students will conclude the course by putting their knowledge to action, in the creation of their research project.
This course is a compulsory course for several programmes. As such, it is not open for visiting Erasmus students because the capacity must be reserved for students who must take the course as part of their curricula.
