This subject was previously known as Qualitative Social Research.
This subject provides students with an opportunity to develop practical skills in collecting, analysing and presenting qualitative data. It starts with an overview of the philosophical, practical and ethical issues involved in `doing' qualitative research before introducing students to a wide range of qualitative data collection methods. Students will also learn how to organise, analyse and write up qualitative research data. Throughout the degree, a hands-on approach will be taken, providing an opportunity to develop research skills and to develop a critical evaluative perspective on the research process itself.
