POLI 7231 Research Methods in Political Science (Fall: 3 )
This course provides an introduction to the practice of empirical research in political science. It addresses a variety of prominent methodological approaches, including experimental and quasi-experimental designs, field studies, interviews, content analysis, survey research, and aggregate data analysis. We will also consider relative strengths, tradeoffs, and syntheses of qualitative and quantitative methods. The course aims to equip students both to conduct original research and to evaluate the work of others.
