GOVT 275 Political Analysis

This course provides a practical introduction to quantitative political analysis. First, we will explore experimental research methods widely used by private companies, governments, and political organizations. Second, we will learn how to visualize political data effectively. Throughout the semester, you will study a political topic -- any topic -- of your choosing. This course is designed to gently introduce quantitative methods to students anxious about working with data. [W, SS]
