Purpose

This course will introduce students to quantitative methods with a special focus on causal inference. It will also introduce students to statistical programming using R.  
Students will learn the main methods for descriptive and inferential statistics as well as modern techniques to evaluate causal relationships. The course will be example-driven and will focus on theoretical principles underlying the different techniques and methods. Mathematics will be kept at a minimum. 
By the end of the course, students will have acquired the skills to critically read and interpret the quantitative content of sociological and political science papers as well as being able to choose appropriate methods for their research questions Register for this course
