SOC 810: Sociological Inquiry (3)

The goals of this course are to understand the characteristics of sociologically interesting and rigorous research and to design a research proposal that shares those characteristics. The focus of students' proposals will be their M.A. thesis project. Students will read books and articles representing a variety of research approaches (ethnographies, surveys, interviews, document analyses, historical studies, comparative research, etc.), and will deconstruct them in order to understand their theoretical and methodological significance. Assignments will include a completed M.A. thesis proposal. LEC
