1 Rhodes University, Department of Sociology SOCIAL RESEARCH METHODS 2016 An Introduction to Qualitative and Quantitative Methods Second Term, General Sociology 2 Lecturer: Tarryn Alexander 1

2 The second-year Research Methodology course will run from Monday 11 April Friday 27 May. This foundation course takes place over seven weeks and covers eight major sections of work geared towards developing your basic understanding of the concepts, terminology, designs, processes and problems which ground the world of social research. At first glance Research Methods may look like a technical course alongside the more abstract sociological subjects you have encountered thus far. In some sense, this is true being able to do research is indeed a practical skill! However, an introduction to research methods must encompass more than practical know-how. This is because the domain of social research speaks to key issues around the production of truth. In fact methodology speaks to the heart of academic life, looking at the systems which scholars have come up with over time to gather information about people and social organisation. As you will come to see methodology is itself a very complex field with many abstract questions which arise from the diverse ways in which new knowledge is produced. Research is an integral part of what C. Wright Mills called our intellectual craftsmanship. It is in this spirit that social research methods will be introduced! This course will introduce you to research techniques as well as some philosophical and political issues around social research. 2

5 Hand-in Assignment no.2 due 13 May Theme Eight: Politics and Legalities: Understanding Ethical Guidelines Understanding the rules which govern ethical research as enshrined formally by research institutions ; Understanding deception in research ; Protecting the research participant in the practice of data gathering. *Class Test: 20 May *** Exam Revision Course Objectives To use the prescribed literature in the syllabus as well as the research textbooks on short loan to understand the themes introduced in lectures. To use the various journal articles and academic papers loaded on to RUConnected on a daily basis to deepen your discussion and illustration of course themes. To critically consider guest speakers application of research concepts in the context of the themes covered in the course 5

6 Course Structure and Reading Requirements Timetable Daily lectures are here to set the framework for what is important and to give you an opportunity to engage with the lecturer and other students on the material. Lectures will therefore cover main points but cannot in themselves prepare you for exams. Constant individual reading and revision is required. Lectures for this course will be given on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursday and Fridays in the Arts Major venue. It is important to note that three periods are set aside for this course every Friday. There is a formal lecture in the morning (10:30 11:15am) and there is a double period (2:15-3:55pm) set aside for this class on Friday afternoons. The double periods on a Friday afternoon can be used for guest lectures, formal lectures, class tests, tutorials and library workshops. Each Monday the full plan for the week ahead will be set out in class. Engagement Preparing for topics ahead of time will make lectures so much more valuable it allows you to listen more meaningfully to what is being said in class. A passive attitude to reading and class participation limits critical engagement, and ultimately your learning. So do preparatory reading. Even better, form study groups and discuss ideas amongst yourselves before they re introduced in lectures! Readings The themes covered in this course can be found in all introductory social research textbooks. There are hundreds of social research books stocked in the library. It is important for you to study the course s main themes (qualitative, 6

7 quantitive designs, sampling, and ethics etcetera) from as many different books as possible. More specific literature will be posted on RU Connected for different sections. Class slides will also indicate the core areas of work you need to study from textbooks.
