SOA 201 - Writing and Interpreting Social Life (4 Cr.)


This course provides a foundation in writing and qualitative research design in the disciplines of sociology and anthropology. The course is team-taught and divided into two seven-week segments. During one part of the course, the focus is developing skills for writing in the discipline, including, (but not limited to) how to: develop and support an argument, select and incorporate appropriate sources, communicate ideas clearly, find one’s voice in writing, and use the citation styles of the discipline. In the other part of the course, the focus will be on qualitative methods of inquiry, including: in-depth interviewing, focus groups, participant observation, visual methods, and narrative research. Course readings allow students to explore the link between theory and methods and examine ethical issues in research. Prerequisite: SOA 100  or permission of instructor. Fall semester. Mullaney, Salvaggio, Schwarz, and Shope.
