Course Syllabus


This course is an introductory course in network analysis, designed to familiarize graduate students with the general concepts and basic techniques of network analysis in political research, gain general knowledge of major theoretical concepts and methodological techniques used in social network analysis (SNA), and get some hands-on experience of collecting, analyzing, and mapping network data with SNA software. In addition, this course will provide ample opportunities to include network concepts in students’ master theses work.
