Course Description

Building on Part I, this course provides an introduction to qualitative research from critical, interpretive, anti-oppression and Indigenous peoples' perspectives. The course explores ethics, ownership, research for and with marginalized communities, inclusiveness and critical reflexivity while designing and conducting research. Students will acquire knowledge and skills to conduct qualitative research, program evaluations and community-based research as a strategy for effecting change. (SWP 538 and SWP 638 replace former equivalent course SWP 38A/B).


Students pursuing the Research Methodologies and Program Evaluation course series who do not have the prerequisite and who wish to take this course should contact Rose Reid, Program Coordinator, at rosereid@ryerson.ca for more information. A prerequisite may be waived if the student has specific professional experience.
