  Course Description
Developing clear, concise, and thorough research designs is one of the most exciting, and challenging, aspects of being a sociologist. In this course, we will survey a number of research methodologies and techniques, paying close attention to their strengths and weaknesses. We will examine issues of design, sampling, and measurement as well as writing and proposal development. Although students may not use every methodological strategy discussed, it is important that graduate training exposes students to the varied ways sociologists research social life. By the end of this course students will have a working familiarity with different types of research designs and perspectives and hands-on experience developing a research proposal.
