政治学研究方法课程目标

This course provides an introduction to the issue of philosophy of science, research design, both quantitative and qualitative methods of political science research and some simple applications of computer statistical software SPSS. At the end of the class, students are NOT expected to become experts on political science methodology. However, students are expected to understand research methods; and be able to design a research and run SPSS statistical software.

 

课程要求

Attendance is mandatory for the class. We expect students to finish required readings for each class before class. Students are expected to be fully engaged in the class discussions. Your class participation grade will be based on your performance in class discussions. The main assignment for the class is a research design of high quality students need to finish by the end of the semester. Designing your research project should be a gradual work. First you need to choose a workable and specific research topic. This work should start with the very first class. The deadline for choosing a research topic is Oct. 18. After that, you should work on your research design for the rest of the semester. You should hand in your draft research design by Dec. 27, 2012. Your final research design is due on Jan. 10, 2013.
