IPOL 320 - Quantitative Meth:Intrnl Pol
The study of social and political phenomena is a vast endeavor and this class will serve as an introduction to quantitative methods for social science research. We will discuss the use of quantitative research methods as a tool to further aid you as researchers of - and participants - in social science research. The progression of this course will address scientific research design and statistics and consider many examples of such research. Students can expect to be introduced to not only the means for conducting rigorous research in social science fields but also the theory that guides the accumulation of knowledge about these phenomena. Its format will be lecture, discussion, active practice, and include formal written submissions. This course will provide students with the analytic tools necessary to understand and perform fundamental quantitative social science research, to identify its limitations and abilities, and to approach quantitative research critically.
