POS 7745 Advanced Quantitative Methods in Political Research

This course is designed to introduce students to advanced topics in the use of statistical methods as well as other methods and tools used to analyze issues in political science research. More specifically, in this course students will learn how to use appropriate statistical software (STATA) in order to perform quantitative data analysis (linear and logistic regression, time-series data analysis, panel data analysis). The course will also introduce students to other potentially useful software to perform data analysis and they will be introduced to methods beyond statistical analysis that are used in political science research such as content analysis, qualitative comparative analysis, agent based modelling and networks.
