AN 201 - Ethnographic Research Methods


Credits: 3
An exploration of the research methods anthropologists use to collect ethnographic data. Students conduct ethnographic projects in local community settings and collect primary data using a variety of techniques, including mapping, interviewing, participant observation, and photography. In the process, students gain experience in formulating research questions, designing an ethnographic project, and analyzing results. Students also learn guidelines for establishing rapport with research participants and for applying anthropology’s code of ethics. Special attention is given to organizing and communicating findings orally and in writing.
Prerequisites:   and   .
Note(s): Anthropology students are recommended to complete the course prior to carrying out ethnographic research in a 300-level course or while studying abroad.
