Course Descriptions

Our Methods School delivers a broad variety of courses that cater for the needs of researchers in political science and neighbouring disciplines. The Winter School offers three complementary course types, providing a comprehensive tuition package.

The Winter School starts with Short, two-day courses held 14 and 15 February, followed by four different categories of Main Courses or Advanced Workshop, each lasting five days, from 17 to 21 February.

Are you are considering package 4 or 5? Please be aware that they entail a heavy workload.

Most Main courses require additional work on top of the three classroom hours each day.

Before you book, please read the course outlines thoroughly and make sure you are confident you can cope with the schedule!

 

Short courses (10.5 hours over two days)

Friday 14 February 2020
13:00–15:00 and 15:30–18:00
Saturday 15 February 2020
09:00-12:30 and 14:00-17:30

These courses offer a quick introduction, or refresher, to tools that will be useful for further courses. Typically, they are software training in preparation for a data analysis course.

 

Main courses AM or PM (3 hours a day) and Advanced Workshop (5 hours a day)

Monday 17 – Friday 21 February 2020

You cannot take a Main course with an Advanced Workshop but you can take two Main courses, AM + PM.

If you want to take two Main courses, AM + PM, please read the course outlines thoroughly. Most Main courses require additional work outside of the standard classes of three hours a day.

There are four types of Main or Advanced Workshop:

Research design/fundamentals An ‘upstream’ course enabling you to think about your research more broadly, so you can make informed choices about specific methods/techniques

Data collection/generation A hands-on course focused on a specific method (or family of methods) for data collection or generation

Data analysis (introductory) A hands-on course focused on a specific method (or family of methods) for data analysis, bringing you to a level of well-informed use

Data analysis (advanced) A hands-on course focused on a specific method (or family of methods) for data analysis, bringing you to an expert level, including more recent refinements.
