The research methodology course offers a broad view of methodology issues related to the planning and implementation of a research process. The main focus is to present different methodological approaches in theoretical as well as empirical social research. It covers topics related to issues as scientific theory, the problem formulation, the nature of abstraction, modes of explanation and understanding, the problem of conceptualization, and the process in which concepts and empirical knowledge interact in formulating a research problem, research questions and research strategies. Another important focus of the course is to present the foundations of a qualitative research approach versus a quantitative research approach in relation to different methods and techniques. Especially primary and secondary data collection will be emphasized as well as procedures for analysis and presentation of research findings in relation to conclusions and recommendations
