About the course

The aim of the course is to provide the student with basic knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative research procedures. The course begins with lectures on philosophy of science, focusing on how science is different from other types of knowledge. The issue of establishing boundary lines between qualitative and quantitative research methods is addressed.
