Political Issues in International Education:
Drawing from political science and comparative and international education, this course analyzes the ways in which education is connected to micro-level attitudes and behaviors and to macro-level social processes such as democratization, peace, conflict, and development around the world. Based in theory, research, and current events, the course interrogates prevailing common-sense notions of education and explores the different ways that education has been understood to contribute to social change.
Qualitative Research Methods:
This course provides an intensive introduction to qualitative methods used in comparative education and the social sciences in international settings. It includes training in research design (e.g., ethnography, case studies), data collection methods (e.g., semi-structured interviews; observations), and analysis most commonly associated with qualitative research.
