Required courses Option A Qualitative Research Methods This course is designed for students who are beginning their dissertation projects. The aim of the course is to give students the tools to conceptualize their theses in terms of research questions and design, methodology, data collection, and qualitative analysis. In doing so, this course focuses more narrowly on the issues, problems, and strategies related to "small-N" qualitative research, for the most part settingaside the techniques of large-N statistical analysis, which is presumed best to be taught in a separate course. Students will read and discuss texts related to theory formation and hypothesis testing; creating variables and measurement; descriptive and causal inference; longitudinal, comparative case study research; field data collection; working with texts and analyzing qualitative data; and, finally, dissertation write-up. This course is divided into four main parts focusing on the following topics: (1) the goals of social science and elements of research design; (2) selecting and application of different methodologies for conducting research; (3) collection of primary and secondary data on the field; and (4) analysis and synthesis of qualitative data in the dissertation-writingprocess. Option B Qualitative Research Design and Methods This Course deals with the general logic of scientific inquiry, research design, sampling, measurement, statistical inference, causal analyses, rational choice theory, and game theory. By the end of this course, you should be able to conceptualize a research problem and develop a number of complementary design, measurement, and date collection approaches to bring evidence to bear on the problem. In this course you will also learn to apply economic reasoning and game theory to interactive situations, that is, to situations in which (1) people have conflicting goals and (2) are affected in important ways by each other's actions. We will use game theory to understand when and how the incentives of individuals can work against the interests of the group, and how this kind of problem can be overcome.
