CQ has created curriculum maps to help students understand the courses available in the ‘Essentials of Qualitative Research’ (EQR) course series. Master’s students will find courses listed as core or advanced depending on their needs. PhD students will find courses listed as broad or focused, and where they fit in the following categories: theoretical foundation of method; data generation; data analysis; thesis completion and professional development. Curriculum maps were updated in June 2020.
