3. Course contents *

The goal of Qualitative Research methods is to give students insight into qualitative research methods. We will focus on the research cycle of qualitative research starting from preparing the research and moving on to data collection, data analysis and reporting.

Even though the major focus lies on qualitative research in general, we will also deal with special techniques like focus group research or a mixed methods design.
