Vieraalla kielellä annettava opetus [III Periodi]

The course mainly focuses on multivariate methods of data analysis. By the term multivariate methods we mean those techniques that are used to analyze data with more than one variable. Each lecture is divided in two parts. The first part teaches the theory behind a statistical test. We use fun and real-life examples to make the teaching of the theory as pleasant as possible. The second part takes place in a LAB where students will practice working with survey data using SPSS. Upon completion of the course students will know how to use descriptive statistics to analyze their data and also to conduct different types of statistical analysis e.g. correlations, simple and multiple linear regressions, regressions with dummies, regressions for categorical response variable etc. No prior knowledge in data analysis or SPSS is needed to successfully complete this course.  

Modes of Study: Participation and a final exam divided in two parts. In the first part, students will have to take a multiple choice test. In the second part, students will have to perform an analysis using SPSS.

 North American Studies is a multidisciplinary program on comparative social institutions. The purpose of the introduction course is to familiarize students with the different approached and methods used to address the issue of social institutions in the fields of political science, economics, history, social policy and sociology. The lecture course is co-taught, with each field providing two lectures outlining their own approaches.

 

Class meetings: The class will meet once a week. Each class period will consist of lecture and discussion, and students are expected to fully participate in the discussions.

Lecture Diaries: Grading for the course will be based on 10 lecture diaries. Each student must write a lecture diary for each class. Each lecture diary must be typed and at least two pages long (single –spaced).

 

Each lecture diary must specify the content of the class: what issue was addressed, and how was the issue examined by the field of research.

The final, 10th lecture diary should be 4 pages long and should summarize differences and similarities in how the various academic disciplines covered in North American Studies address issues related to institutions.

The purpose of this assignment is to reinforce the main theoretical ideas of the course and their applications; and to give feedback as to how well you understand the material.

Lecture diaries may be sent to me by email or you may hand them to me in class.

Grades: Grades will be weighted in the following manner: Each lecture diary entry is 10 points, for a total of 100 points.
