PSCI 380 Research Methods in Political Science



This course introduces students to the various stages of the research process from conceptualization of the research question to interpretation of findings. Students learn how to take a scientific approach to questions about political phenomena instead of the more familiar advocacy approach taken by politicians, interest groups, and lobbyists. Students will learn how to ask empirical questions about the political world, how to answer these questions scientifically using the appropriate types of evidence and how to clearly convey arguments, evidence, and conclusions to others. Credit(s): 3

Prerequisite(s): MATH 207
