ANTH 302 - Research Methods

This seminar focuses on the fundamentals of ethnographic research design and methodology as they relate to anthropological and public health research. Students will learn to define a topic, formulate research questions, conduct a literature review, draft a proposal, conduct participant observation, carry out ethnographic interviews, design surveys, and create fieldnotes. We will discuss and practice these methods in real-world contexts, formulating research questions and practicing the methods best suited to answer those questions through a semester-long collaborative class project. The course culminates in the design of an individual pilot project and proposal.
