Brief Summary of ProposalThis proposal seeks to institutionalize Qualitative Methods I and II as their own courses, as opposed to offering them as a Special Topics course (5100:801). The proposal creates additional research course offerings for doctoral students. This change will provide benefits to the College and to our students. First, students from other colleges and universities will be able to clearly identify what we have to offer in terms of qualitative coursework and we will hopefully gain additional students as a result. More and more students are incorporating qualitative methods and analysis in their doctoral work, and a clear articulation of the strong program we provide will attract them. Second, this proposal will benefit students in that their transcripts will now show the depth and breadth of the qualitative coursework they have, as opposed to having several sections of a Special Topics course listed. The Special Topics course can continue to be used for specialized topics in qualitative research or for even more advanced study.
