This course focuses on the epistemological and practical dimensions of interviews as a data collection method for social science research. The topics covered by this course include: sampling, recruitment, ethics, analysis and how to actually conduct a rich interview.  This course is designed to be most useful to those with some familiarity with qualitative methods broadly, and for those who come to the course with some sense of an interview study they want to conduct. Students seeking an introductory overview of qualitative methods should see MY421/521.
