§ 5 (1) 3. b 2 PS Applied Methods of Social Science

Students acquire the ability to deal with current empirical studies and to apply the first steps of a research process (formulation of a research issue, data collection, method reflection) autonomously in terms of quality and/or quantity or method.

Qualitative and quantitative methods in the Social Sciences are tools that can be used to empirically investigate social-scientific research questions. The selection of a specific method depends on each particular research question. In this module, students will learn about the most popular qualitative and quantitative Social Science research methods using practical examples and exercises. All stages of the empirical research process in Social Sciences will be covered, i.e. we deal with the development of a research question, the planning and design of the investigation, the operationalization, the implementation of the research project as well as the data analysis. Upon completion of the seminar, the participants will be able to conduct their own small research projects applying qualitative and quantitative research methods.
