Description

This course teaches the basic data collection methods used by social scientists — experiments, surveys, unstructured interviews, observation, historical/archival methods, and evaluation/intervention. It also introduces students to the analysis of these data — including both statistical and textual analysis — to identify empirical patterns. A major focus of the course is a project in which students formulate a research question, and collect and analyze data to answer that question. The course emphasizes critical thinking about the empirical research presented in everyday life, as well as preparation for more advanced research courses.
