online methods courses

The University of Florida is now offering online courses on research methods in anthropology.

The first two courses, offered in May-June of 2012, are Text Analysis in Cultural Anthropology (taught by Clarence Gravlee and Amber Wutich) and Geospatial Analysis in Cultural Anthropology (taught by Eduardo Brondizio and Tracy Van Holt).

Each five-week, online course, carries three university credits at the graduate level, but the courses may be taken without credit. The courses are for professionals and graduate students in anthropology and other social sciences who are looking to strengthen their skills in research methods. The emphasis in each course is on skills for collecting and analyzing the many kinds of data with which anthropologists work.

Courses in this online program were developed with support from the National Science Foundation’s Program in Cultural Anthropology. More courses are planned for 2013 and 2014.
