Description:

This class is designed to equip students with tools needed for the collection of quantitative and qualitative data in the context of an applied research project.

Specifically, students learn to write literature reviews, to conduct personal interviews, to run focus groups, and to design survey questionnaires. All techniques discussed are applied to the analysis of public policy issues. Policy is analyzed with respect to its strengths and weaknesses from various stakeholders perspectives. Students are required to present their work in class.
