ONT 106 PZ -Applied Qualitative Methods

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course constructs the bride between academia and activism through practice-based research. The study of diverse aspects of qualitative inquiry culminates in the execution of a complete applied research project. We explore the role, responsibilities and ethics of an applied researcher, reviewing various types of inquiry that fall under the umbrella of qualitative research (i.e., ethnography, participatory action, narrative inquiry, participant-observation, applied research). Students directly impact not only their own intellectual knowledge base, but crucial social issues in the world around them. Students leave the course with a strong foundation to carry out systematic research using focus groups, ethnography and person-centered interviews. 1 credit.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
