DEVM 512 - Qualitative Research Methods
This course is intended for graduate students planning social science research projects involving comparison of regional politics and public policies. It will equip students with a variety of research methods, including survey research, the techniques of political interviewing, participant observation, techniques for electoral analysis, case studies and the uses of primary sources. A goal of the course is to make students aware of the ways in which choices of methodology are closely linked to broader theoretical and conceptual issues, and to consider the appropriateness of different methodologies and types of evidence to test alternative hypotheses and to construct various arguments. By the end of the course students should be able to prepare a research proposal on a significant problem leading to the writing of a thesis.
