LANG 7110Research Methodology
The course aims to prepare students to successfully engage in research in language studies, in particular to support dissertation writing later in the Programme and to lay the foundation for students’ research in their workplaces/future study programmes. The course deals with basic research skills such as identifying a researchable area of genuine interest, framing and understanding the purpose of research questions, accessing information, locating one's own work in the scholarly literature, collecting and analyzing language data, and producing written reports of research projects in acceptable formats. Students will be introduced to research in language studies and be encouraged to identify their own areas of interest. Attention will be drawn to current research methods and tools. Much of the teaching will be concerned with approaches to the collection, description, and analysis of data in the field of language studies. (Course on offer in Sem 1)
