Methods for Cross Cultural Research (Online)

February 6 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm


This course will be offered online only. Attendance is required – this course will not be recorded.

Methods for Cross-Cultural Research is a 2.5 hour short-course focused on designing and implementing social science research cross-culturally, with a particular emphasis on collecting interview data. In the face of increasing globalization, concerns for external validity, and the importance of capturing the diversity of human experience, there is a need to consider how to implement research cross-culturally.

In this course, participants will consider different definitions of culture, how research is itself a cultural practice, what perspectives and analytical approaches can be employed in cross-cultural research, as well as best practices in designing and implementing cross-cultural research.

This course will count as 7.0 CSS short course credit hours.
