FOR 432 - Collecting Social Data In Forestry

Description: This course provides an in-depth overview of different approaches to collect social science data that can support or dictate land management efforts in applied forestry and related natural resources or environmental contexts. Both qualitative and quantitative methods will be discussed, with particular emphasis placed on interviews, surveys, and focus groups in the context of forest management. Course content will train students to differentiate between high- and low-quality studies in the existing literature and prepare students to design and implement rigorous social science data collection efforts in both public-facing forestry and scientific research careers. Co-convened with FOR 532. Letter grade only.
