    I have just been introduced to a graduate class in Mixed methods and wonder if there should still be any study in the social sciences utilizing solely quantitative or qualitative methodologies.

    It’s an interesting question! I think most people would answer that you should choose whatever method or combination of methods best suits your research question, and this often means mixing methods. However, there are still disciplines that favour certain methods over others, usually because it is thought that these methods provide the best route to answering the kinds of research questions researchers in those disciplines are asking.
