    SOC 82A: Applied Research Methods

    Instructor: Charlotte Powley
    Prerequisites: May not be taken for credit by students who took SOC 182a in prior years.
    Course Description: <b>This course will be a Zoom-based "Remote Learning" course for Summer 2022</b><br> This course provides an introduction to research methods and quantitative analysis commonly used in sociology. The course assumes no prior knowledge of research methods, but it does assume an interest in why we conduct research, how research studies are designed, and a willingness to analyze the research methods and results of different research studies. This class fulfills Brandeis’ Quantitative Reasoning (QR) requirement, which means that there will be a strong focus on understanding numeric data. Success in this four-credit course is based on the expectation that students will spend on average a minimum of 9 hours of study time per week in preparation for class (readings, papers, latte posts, STATA exercises).
