“Qualitative Content Analysis, Ethnographic Study, Content Analysis, Quantitative Analysis….” [picture glazed look, and a buzzing sound] that about sums up most of what I remember from the first class: Advanced Media Methodologies.
Lots of scribbling was done, pages of notes taken even a few comments were passed during that class. All this, amidst the glazed look and continuous buzz in the ear. Bright eyed and charged up for the first day of your postgraduate studies, there’s nothing quite like the first Masters class to “smack” the sweet memory of your Honours year research know how out the window.
And so it begins, the search for the ever elusive research question/thesis statement.
