SOCL 352 - Research Design

Fall and Spring (3) Staff (CSI)

This course introduces students to the logics of sociological research, and the diverse research designs that follow. Specifically, students will be introduced to selected qualitative and quantitative research designs that exemplify alternative logical and empirical traditions in sociological research. Students will learn skills necessary to understand the logic of different underlying methods, evaluate the strengths/weaknesses of quantitative and qualitative approaches, and assess whether research findings support stated conclusions.  Attention will also be given to assessing the ethical/political implications of research design.
