Multiple Methodologies

Our department's collective toolkit includes an array of different methodological strategies

Faculty undertake ethnographies, in-depth interviews, survey research, focus groups, statistical analysis of secondary data, and the use of comparative historical methods.

One of the noteworthy features of our department is our methodological cross-fertilization, reflected in the increasing use by faculty of multiple-methods in their research approaches. Quantitative scholars are incorporating in-depth interviews; statistical analysts are using comparative historical methods; and ethnographers have become conversant in designing surveys.
