EMR 6580 - Qualitative Research Practicum

The focus of this course is on carrying out the qualitative study designed in EMR 648. Topics of discussion include forms of qualitative data, grounded theory, identifying patterns in data, codes and coding, data interpretation, data presentation, and use of the computer to facilitate data collection and analysis. The emphasis of the course is on the implementation, analysis, interpretation, and writing of a qualitative research study. The final product is a research paper based on the qualitative study conducted in the class. At the heart of EMR 6580 is the practicum experience: Each student will carry out a small-scale research project. If we combine EMR 6480 and EMR 6580, the goal of the sequence is for students to experience the full cycle of research, from the identification and narrowing of a problem to the final rendering and reporting of results.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: EMR 6480.
