Learning another way to conduct social research

Although sociology and international relations both come from social science but i find they have different type of research project.
My undergraduate thesis ( it's about e-waste trade) use literature review which is all of it use secondary data. Thus i had intimate relationship just with internet, journals and book.
On the other hand, my soon-to-be master thesis which is about radicalism and pesantren will use phenomenology and it's like new experience for me bcs i have to do some depth interview and observations beside tracking another literature.
I wish i could make that challenge and finish my thesis well, wish me luck
