Aim and content
This is a generic course. This means that the course is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at the Graduate School, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. After the enrolment deadline, available seats will be allocated to the waiting list.

The course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. Demonstrate in-depth and advanced understanding of different theoretical and analytical approaches to analyzing qualitative research material
2. Assess the appropriateness of specific analytical approaches for different qualitative research designs
3. Explain and demonstrate how a chosen analytical approach is consistent with a study, its problem, methodology, and research material
4. Have insight to conduct a qualitative analysis in accordance with acknowledged criteria of quality and disciplinary integrity
5. Compare and discuss different theoretical and scientific approaches, their possibilities and limitations

This course aims to increase PhD students’ competences in analysis of qualitative research. During the course we will operationalize how to work analytically with qualitative data and demonstrate how different knowledge traditions, theoretical frameworks and methodological premises influence one’s analytical results. We will work in-depth with an array of relevant research traditions and analytic approaches – phenomenology, narrative theory, ethnography, discourse analysis, visual analysis etc. - and especially focus on how to develop concepts, categories and distinct theoretical themes related to a chosen analytical pathway. We will emphasize how analysis is a working process that constitutes ongoing communication between several levels and phases of the research process, i.e. an interaction between method, data and theory that starts already from the first project idea. The last seminar will focus on academic writing, how analysis becomes text.

PhD students and research-year medical students working on a research project based on qualitative methods. Data collection must be in progress, i.e. we expect participants to work with their own empirical material. Sixteen seats will be available.

Relevance to graduate programmes
The course is relevant to PhD students from the following graduate programmes at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH:

Public Health and Epidemiology

Medicine, Culture and Society

Public Health and Epidemiology

Danish except one course-day in English. English if required by non-Danish participants

The course consists of eight research seminars. Seminar days are conducted as master classes with opening lectures and exercises. Participants will be given the opportunity to apply relevant analytical approaches to their own data or texts provided by us and we will work with the process of turning analysis into academic writing. Work in groups, project presentations and preparation between seminars will be expected.
