Sociology 357: Methods of Sociological Inquiry
NOTE: Although I have not taught this course in a long time, I leave these materials on the web because they have been useful to others in planning their own courses.
The core of this course is three data collection exercises: a field observation, a questionnaire, and a field experiment. You also do a methodological analysis of a professional research article. The summer term version of this course has been adapted to fit into the four-week format, including replacing the article analysis assignment with a final examination.
