Omschrijving The main focus of this course is to collect data, analyze data, report results, and to discuss results in an academic manner. This course focuses on collecting and analyzing qualitative data and using qualitative methods, with a focus on interviewing. This course builds on, and enriches, your already acquired skills from the first-year course Introduction to Academic Research (IAR). With its focus on qualitative research, it complements the courses on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Statistics (Statistics 1 & 2) that instead both focus on quantitative data and methods. Together, the methodological courses in the program equip you with knowledge and skills about quantitative and qualitative methods and their applications. Combined, this set of courses prepares you for your upcoming Bachelor Thesis.
