  1. Hi everyone: I was hoping to get some opinions on the best strategy when applying to methodologically divided departments. After speaking with a current PhD student, he seemed to imply that the department is split and a lot of your research will depend on the professors you get grouped in with from the beginning (this is a top program). He went as far as to suggest there was an underlying resentment/hostility between faculty, which makes me second guess whether or not that's the place I want to be -- but I plan to apply regardless and I've also heard that other programs may have similar atm
  2. Hi All, I was recently accepted to a PhD in Educational Psychology & Methodology program at University at Albany, SUNY. However i was waitlisted for funding. I was searching for info/people with similar experiences and since I couldn't find an EdPsyc specific thread I decided to start one. Would love to hear from others applying to similar programs anywhere and would really like to hear from anyone with experience at UAlbany.
  3. How does one go about determining the methodological bent of a particular political science department? I am primarily interested in comparative politics (comparative political economy, especially), with a regional interest in Western Europe. While I have taken courses in quantitative research methodology and am fairly well-versed in regression, I think that I am better suited for qualitative research. With this in mind, do any departments/professors in the US (preferably top 30) meet these criteria? Thanks
  4. I know it's a bit late in the game, but I would love to hear what people know about the UGA program (looking specifically at American/Methodology) other than the USNWR ranking. Any information at all would be appreciated! TIA
  5. Hello! I am considering applying to sociology or criminology programs for Fall 2018. One of my top goals for graduate school is to be trained in mixed methods approaches to research design. Ideally I would go to a program that has strong qualitative researchers as well as professors who could teach me how to integrate quantitative and qualitative data in data collection and analysis. Does anyone know of programs or professors with strengths in teaching these methods? Any help is appreciated. I'm starting to create a list of programs that fit my interests.
  6. HI all! I'm new to the forum, so I hope you will forgive me if this question has been asked already. However, these days changes in the discipline are so fast, that perhaps information like this should be updated once in a while. Anyway, getting down to business. I was wondering how the top PhD programs in the US compare when it comes to their methodological allegiances. For example, I prefer qualitative methods, though I'd like to incorporate quantitative methods into my work. So when I'm going to apply for schools I want to make sure that I will not end up having to take 6 quantit
  7. Greetings, participants and lurkers of the Art History Forum in the Humanities department of The Grad Café. Here's a question that has been brewing in my mind: Just what is methodology, and how should one go about assessing methodological fit with POIs and departments? In certain programs, there exist codified breakdowns of subfields (Ancient, Modern/Contemporary, Latin America, History of Photography, yougetthepicture). Can methodology be organized and categorized neatly? What might that look like? Give me what you've got.
