Primary Instructor:

The purpose of this course is to train students to apply game theoretic methods to political science problems. Skill development will be evaluated through a series of problem sets and exams. Questions of research design and application will be addressed. Throughout the course, we will hold article-based workshops where we will use published articles as a basis for discussions of how to (and how not to) integrate models into research designs. The main premise of this class is that you will learn more about game theory by doing it rather than simply reading about it. Students wishing to integrate game-theoretic research designs into their own research can use this course as a basis for fully engaging in the department’s new advanced offerings in formal modeling.
