Mixed Methods


Neither quantitative nor qualitative data analysis has all the answers in social science research: qualitative research has depth and nuance but is not generalisable beyond the sample on which it is based, while quantitative research is generalisable but may lack depth.

A mixed methods approach, which uses evidence from both qualitative and quantitative approaches to shed light on a single research question, has the potential to gain the advantages of both approaches. However, genuine mixed methods work is not always easy. This short course will introduce students to the rationale behind the use of mixed methods approaches, and how to design mixed methods projects for best results.
