Qualitative Research Methods - BACH4056

Year - 2018

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