Advanced Methodology Department / AMD
The initial objective was to give students and young researchers the necessary methodological tools to accompany them in their academic and professional curriculum and thus guarantee their success. In fact, we started from the observation that there was a huge gap in methodology and that there really was a need for a methodology course applied to the discipline of study in order to be more successful in a project of study or study. research. Through its different departments, Methodologica Governance University applies to the teaching of a disciplinary and infra-disciplinary methodology. As part of the methodology department of research in the human sciences, we offer preparation modules addressed to students who are preparing a master and DBA in human sciences and management. These modules cover different topics such as: academic writing, the choice of a problem, hypotheses or the research question. These practical modules allow students to deepen and develop the knowledge necessary for their academic or professional career by offering them the opportunity to carry out practical and interactive exercises. The goal of this interactivity is to reach the stage of self-correction and to allow them to be independent and autonomous. The department of applied methodology is the largest department at Methodologica Governance University. It brings together methodologists, scholars and researchers of research methodology in humanities. It offers, like other departments, a multilingual programme through courses, seminars and workshops on general methodology and basic and specific techniques. The department of methodology has been created in December 2007 with a specific programme that has been developed since and adapted to the needs of students and researchers and also to the needs of all those who want to learn the practical and theoretical methodology in different areas of the humanities. This department brings together specialist teaching methodology. It has the means to ensure the theoretical and practical methodology.
By achieving its objectives, the Department of methodology will be guided by academic and strategic considerations and the importance of education and training, to promote the methodology and education of human resources.
The Department will develop its relations with other organizations concerned with the prospective research, mainly in Europe but also in other parts of the world, and will be likely to launch cooperative activities with these organizations.
The main objective of the Department of applied methodology can be summarized as:
– Teaching the advanced methodology
– Achievement of extensive research projects, perspective reports,
– Publication of research work of methodologists,
– Cooperation with academics and international experts,
– Networking of methodologists and researchers of the Department allowing members to exchange information and opinions,
– Organization of conferences, seminars, symposia and other public events whose objective would be to contribute to the influence of strategic and prospective studies,
– Development and expansion of cooperation in the fields of basic research,
– Promoting the mobility of researchers and the free flow of ideas and information.
The Department of Avanced methodology focuses at first on the teaching of methodology in various disciplines. These teachings are theoretical and will be provided within the framework of workshops of analysis and data processing.
The Department of Advanced methodology also organizes various specialized training sessions for senior managers from public and private institutions. The Department sees its contribution to the education through young PhD students’ research as one of its essential tasks, conducted in close relationship with its academic partners. The Department will continue its active involvement in education, paying special attention to the quality of research and, more generally, the quality of the training received by these PhD students and to the preparation of their employability and their field research.
In 2015, the department will release a methodology reference book. This department also continues its own electronic multidisciplinary journal presenting articles in different fields of methodology.
