This case study discusses the many considerations and challenges I encountered while conducting research for my dissertation. I highlight two methods in particular—survey experiments and content analysis—both of which I relied upon heavily while studying partisanship in the U.S. public and depictions of partisanship in mass media in the United States. The case study also offers useful recommendations regarding how to organize a dissertation, obtain survey data, and hold oneself accountable for completing research on time.
