Approaches To Phenomenological Inquiry And Data Analysis – res727 (3 credits)

This course is designed to provide advanced graduate students with instruction in qualitative phenomenological approaches as applied to social science research with the primary focus on data collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation. The course will emphasize individual and group interviewing as techniques for phenomenological data collection. Focus is placed on analysis approaches appropriate for and relevant to phenomenological research. Competency A: Differentiate between transcendental and hermeneutic phenomenology. Competency B: Develop a phenomenologic attitude toward researching a phenomenon. Competency C: Develop and refine research questions to align with phenomenological research design. Competency D: Apply phenomenologic concepts, tools, and techniques to data analysis of a phenomenon. Competency E: Develop and refine a research tool and interviewing techniques to elicit desired data. Competency F: Analyze techniques for presenting research findings based on phenomenologic orientation. Competency G: Evaluate reliability, internal and external validity, and transferability in phenomenological inquiry.

This graduate-level course is 8 weeks. This course is available to take individually or as part of a degree or certificate program. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
