Advanced Qualitative research methods (Module)

Module description

Qualitative methods are ubiquitous in development research – partly out of conviction, partly for lack of reliable quantitative data. Either way, qualitative studies can arguably be done well or poorly. Unfortunately, it is often not so easy to say which is which. That's why this module is a little different from the methods course you may have taken in your undergraduate studies. While it does cover the same familiar areas of research design, different kinds of qualitative material and analytical strategies, its aim is not primarily to teach you how to conduct qualitative research, but to enable you to evaluate the quality in qualitative research.
