Module 1: Theories of Social Science and Methodolog

The course will introduce students to a variety of specific methodological approaches, including interview technique, field work, etc. which they will later use in practice in the project work in Module 8 and Module 15. In the presentations of qualitative methods, emphasis will be on how students can translate these methods into their own practices. Furthermore, strong emphasis will be placed on discussing quality criteria in the contexts of various methods, both qualitative and quantitative, in order to enable students to read other scientists’ research critically and make well-founded choices in their own project work.
