SOCI 016B. Research Methods in Social Science (M)

This course is a practical introduction to research in the social sciences.  We discuss what is and is not knowable about the social world, and the ways in which sociology, anthropology, and adjacent disciplines conduct and evaluate research.  We learn about and practice three of the primary methodologies of our disciplines: ethnography, in-depth interviewing, and surveys. Students will learn the rudiments of statistical analysis; no prior training in statistics is required (or expected).
