This course is designed to acquaint students with major
issues in the design of sociological research and the
collection of relevant data.  The course covers broad
issues in research design--e.g., the purposes of
research, causality, temporality--as well as general
issues in measurement and specific data collection
procedures.  We will read classic and contemporary
methodological writings, and read and critique
empirical research.
