American Families of Faith

The American Families of Faith research project is a national research project involving in-depth, qualitative interviews with nearly 300 religious couple and families (500+ individuals) from all eight regions of the United States. We interview "exemplary" families with strong marriages and learn how they have overcome challenges in life, marriage, and parenting--and how their faith has helped them do so.

RAs can receive either pay or credit (begins as SFL 403R).

RA Tasks:

  • Reading and qualitatively coding interviews
  • Transcribing interviews
  • Conducting qualitative interviews
  • Developing research posters/presentations
  • Assisting with research papers
  • Using NVivo
