Quantitative methods A variety of methodological approaches make it possible to find answers to research questions (for example, as part of a bachelor’s or master’s thesis). However, when it comes to quantitative methods, it is important to follow fundamental standards and work techniques and be familiar with the limits and possibilities of this empirical and analytical approach.
A research consultation can help and support you to refine interviewing and surveying techniques, design and develop questionnaires, consider the theoretical implications of various random samples, and deal with issues related to (descriptive) statistics. Our research consultants in the Academic Lab at Leipzig University work closely with the Center for Quantitative Empirical Social Research (QuanteL) at Leipzig University.
Research consultations — discourse analysis Discourse analysis is very common and often used for final papers in the humanities and social sciences. However, there a number of quite different options that range from rather critical, deconstructive discourse analysis to more formal approaches such as sociological discourse analysis. A research consultation can help you select the most suitable theoretical tools and deal with issues of implementation.
