Credits: 3

Psychologists are increasingly recognizing the value of qualitative research, both to inform and enhance quantitative forms of inquiry, and as a meaningful form of inquiry in its own right. As qualitative methods gain a foothold in the field (e.g., establishment of a qualitative inquiry section within APA's Division of "Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics," and the soon to be launched APA journal Qualitative Psychology) pioneering students may find themselves lost in a field characterized by different language, and sometimes different logics, than that which they are accustomed. The course is designed to help students wishing to bridge this so-called "quantitative-qualitative" divide in psychology by providing an introduction to epistemological and methodological traditions in qualitative psychology; consideration of distinct ethical concerns; and the opportunity for "hands on" experience with qualitative research, including data collection, analysis, and report writing.
