POLS 2010  Scope/Methods Poli Sci  (3 Credit Hours)  

This course is intended to introduce advanced students to the concepts and methods of political science research. Substantive fields of interest--such as American politics, IR, Comparative, etc.--are all bound by similar skills and techniques inherent to the discipline of political science. Students will be introduced to these techniques in an effort to train them to become producers, not merely consumers of knowledge. This course is fundamentally about how to conduct research in political science, and what makes political science a science. The course covers both introductory quantitative methods (univariate, bivariate, and some multivariate analyses), as well as some of the most often used qualitative methods in the discipline. The course is not meant to be exhaustive of all political science methods.
