bibble1998 Posted January 31, 2021 Share Posted January 31, 2021 (posted to the PolySci forum a few months ago, but I think it would be valuable to get input from people in sociology PhDs...) I'm hoping to apply to Ph.D. programs in 2-3 years (taking some time off after my undergrad). Broadly I'm interested in studying social movements, voter behavior, and political culture, and while I am not opposed to quantitative methods (and do already have some background in them), I really want to attend a doctoral program that is strong in its qualitative methods training, particularly ethnographic research - interviewing, observation, etc. I'm not sure how to approach researching schools, since it feels like the topics I am interested in are more suited for a political science Ph.D., while the method training I am looking for is more robust in a sociology (or anthropology?) program. Any advice on how to go about deciding schools to apply to? I can apply to doctoral programs in both disciplines, but I'm curious whether ethnographic methods in political science is on its way out - and if I'm better off looking to sociology programs instead. Any insight is much appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
