Course Description: This course is an extension of Introduction to Political Methodology. It assumes that students are comfortable with the rudimentary vocabulary from POL101 that revolves around theory and hypothesis development in political science. This course delves more deeply into quantitative analysis in the political and social sciences by using examples and observations taken from American, Japanese, and international comparative contexts. This is not a class in statistics or statistical theory. While various techniques for analysis are introduced, the emphasis is on gaining experience with the structure, exploration and visualization of political data. At the beginning of the term, students develop a research question on a domestic or international problem of interest to them and, by the end, have made progress on research related to that question.
