ANT 310 - Research Methods

This course introduces students to research methods used in anthropological research, both qualitative and quantitative. The scientific method will be discussed in detail and put in its historical and cultural context. Ethnographic methods will be detailed and discussed in the first portion of the course; how such methods are used to collect, analyze, and report on cross-cultural data will be explored. The use of quantitative methods in various contexts (e.g., human populations, forensic skeletal evidence) will comprise the second portion of the course.
