Experimental Political Science

Semester: 

Summer

Offered: 

2017
Experiments are an increasingly popular research method in political science. They are often seen as the gold standard for research designs. In this course we will discuss different types of experiments and how they can be used to study causal relationships in political science. We will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of different experimental designs. The design of the course hinges on a connection of theoretical discussions and a strong active component, where students design, run, analyse and present an experiment in group work.
