Are you looking to learn more about how to conduct scientific research, specifically in an urban or local context? Then you have found the right course: Studying Cities: Social Science Methods for Urban Research by the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS), Erasmus University Rotterdam. 

Before any (urban) researcher may start conducting research, it is crucial to understand the different aspects and elements of doing research.
