The course will provide students with an understanding of the theoretical and practical perspectives that underlie ethnographic and qualitative methodological approaches to applied research. In-class discussions and activities will expose students to various approaches to gathering, analyzing, writing up, and utilizing qualitative research data. The course leads students through the process of articulating research interests, moving from broad topics to specific research questions and problems, and defining the relationship between research questions, theory, and choice of methods. Questions of researcher subjectivity and the ethics of conducting human research are all explored. Through this course students will design research proposals that may be used as a basis for their Professional Decision Report (PDR) or Paper of Publishable Quality (PPQ) capstone projects.
