ANTH 458 Ethnographic Field Methods (3)
(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.
This course is designed to introduce you to some (not all) ethnographic field methods. It will include actual projects you will have to carry out and other material that will make you a better ethnographer, such as how to pose questions that can be answered, how to select an appropriate sample for a project, how to take and use field notes. Because the emphasis is on field methods, we will do only simple analyses that don�t require any statistical sophistication (e.g., descriptive statistics, chi square tests).
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
