GEOG 250 - Research Methods

This course acquaints students with key principles and practices of original scholarly research. It first emphasizes the key role in research of a clearly formulated question, one that is significant and workable and is grounded in a conceptual framework drawn from the existing literature. It then focuses on the techniques and rationale of a particular method of research, which will vary from semester to semester. Examples of possible foci include statistical analysis, interviews, community-based and participatory research, content analysis, or the interpretation of historical primary sources. In close consultation with the instructor, students will design, carry out, and report on a research project employing that method to answer a question of their own design.
