Qualitative Research Methods Minor

Program Details

The purpose of the minor is to provide graduate students, particularly in education programs, access to a sequence of qualitative methods courses to enhance their understanding of research methods. Students who are awarded this minor will leave UW with the experiences and knowledge base they need in order to teach research methods at the university level. This concentration of courses also provides our graduates a documented way to demonstrate to potential employers that they have academic preparation in qualitative research methods.

The minor is available to all enrolled students in master's or doctoral degree programs.
