This class is designed to introduce students to qualitative research design, data collection, and analysis. It provides students with first-hand experience in designing, gathering and analyzing qualitative data. The course is an introduction because one semester is insufficient time to design and conduct a full study, or to fully master the various qualitative methods.

The class involves two weekly class sessions that consist of lectures, discussion, presentations, and practical training. The course also includes a weekly 75-minute lab to workshop the different components involved in research design, learn data analysis, and code by hand or using the qualitative data analysis software package, NVivo.
