Qualitative Research Methods

A range of interpretative frameworks and inherent assumptions will be considered when reviewing, conducting, and reporting qualitative research. First-year students intending to take EU597 will finalize their research question, develop a purpose statement, and conduct their literature review as part of this course. Second-year students enrolled in EU597 will analyze qualitative data if appropriate.
