GEOG 141 - Research Design and Methods in Geography


Focuses on ways in which empirical geographic research is conducted. Students study problems, methodological strategies and analytical techniques characteristic of current research in human and/or environmental geography and spatial science. Includes defining a research problem, research design, approaches to sampling and measurement, analysis, interpretation and writeup. As a building block of geographic and human-environment research, GEOG 141 is a required skills course in the Geography major, and strongly recommended for the GES major. All Geography majors are required to take the research methods course in the Geography department; substitution requests for GEOG 141 will be granted only in exceptional circumstances, after consultation with the major advisor, and with adequate justification.

Must register for discussion; recommended for sophomores.
