Students learn about how people are using media goods and services today, and how that is both the same and different in the historic
context. Lectures also highlight changing perceptions of media, emphasising what that implies for meeting expectations and accommodating variation in preferences. Coursework encourages developing more nuanced understandings in a comparative framework that offers contrasts between legacy media and new media, audiences and users in key segments (e.g. younger versus older, men versus women), and in different countries (i.e. international comparison).

Language of instruction: English

This course introduces students to the testing of causal hypotheses with statistical methods, focusing on social-science applications.  Causal inference in this setting requires melding the language of mathematical statistics with the reality of human decision-making.  Successfully testing a social-science hypothesis thus requires both facility with the mathematics, as well an understanding of how people actually behave.  This course gives students an introduction to the math, and experience in translating the math to reality.

The course is timed according to the scripted schedule of the masters’ program in Public Choice, and is tailored to the needs of that program.  As a result, non-PCP students should be aware that the course will proceed at a substantially faster pace than other courses.

The first week is the program’s Math Camp, consisting of 10 lecture hours (no quarters) and nightly group homework assignments.  The following three weeks form the Statistics component, consisting of 24 lecture hours (no quarters), twice-a-week group homework assignments, and a final exam.  The final mark comes from the Statistics component alone: 50% weight on homework, and 50% on the exam.
