SOCIAL RESEARCH METHODS

Research methods don't sound particularly sexy at first. In fact, research methods are extremely fascinating. They allow us to access the truth. Can there be anything more exciting?

With this YouTube and podcast series, I have tried to convey social research methods in the simplest and most vivid way possible. Did I succeed? Watch or listen for yourself.
