About:

In this course, students will build knowledge of and competence with data analysis techniques developed in the anthropological tradition of ethnography. Integrating data from multiple collection methods (e.g. observational field notes, interviews, analyses of cultural artifacts), students will develop coding/thematic grouping protocols as well as strategies to develop findings into comprehensive interpretation of a particular culture. The course will conclude with a comprehensive overview of the process and practice of writing up ethnographic texts, centering largely on “thick description” as a critical mode of representation. Competency A: Explore the theoretical evolution of ethnography through cultural and social anthropology. Competency B: Examine philosophies and methodologies underpinning ethnographic research. Competency C: Determine appropriate ethnographic design, data collection methods, and analysis techniques for various applications. Competency D: Apply ethnographic design to an identified researchable issue. Competency E: Analyze ethnographic results to present findings appropriately to stakeholders.

This graduate-level course is 8 weeks This course is available to take individually or To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
