Objective

Students are able to detect relevant and interesting research targets in their professional field. They are familiar with the research approaches and methods used in social sciences. Students know how to evaluate the suitability of various research approaches and methods for given targets. They know how to define a research task and how to formulate research questions. Students are familiar with the whole research process and its features in qualitative, quantitative and action research. They know how to use the most important qualitative and quantitative research tools and recognise the action research process. Students select and focus on one approach, qualitative, quantitative or action research.
