IDS Approved Courses From Other Departments - Quantitative Analysis for the Social Sciences II SOSA 4002   Quantitative Analysis for the Social Sciences II
This course will focus on the use of quantitative methods in social science research. It will introduce students to regression techniques and concentrate on the assumptions motivating quantitative analysis. The course will also look at regression diagnostics and critically weigh options available to researchers when "normal" assumptions are broken. The course will be split into lectures and computer labs using statistical software. The labs will apply methods covered in class and explore potential secondary data resources. The course will develop these skills through a series of class projects.
