QRAM is interdisciplinary. Qualitative researchers come from a range of disciplines including sociology, health, education, history, occupational therapy, psychology, social work, business, anthropology, counseling, management, hospitality and tourism, criminology, speech communication and many others.

Members have the opportunity to learn from other disciplines in their use of qualitative methodology through QRAM's national seminars, workshops and international conventions. These activities provide
