Qualitative Research Methods (BACH4056)
UNIT OF STUDY
In this unit, students will learn the skills involved in undertaking qualitative research. The main focus is therefore on the practicalities of actually carrying out the methods. The unit is based on seminars which combine a traditional lecture format with interactive practice-based methods learning. Students will have the opportunity to develop and practice their skills in interviewing, focus groups, observation, visual methods, documentary analysis and qualitative survey design. This experience will allow students to confidently apply these methods within research projects and future work in their chosen fields.
