Course Description An experiment is a data collection strategy that involves randomization and control. Combined, these features allow for the unbiased estimation of causal effects in a sample. The goal of this course is to introduce you to the logic but especially practice of experiments. This course has two parts. The first part is an introduction to experimental logic and design, principally through exemplary experimental studies. You will apply this knowledge in the second part of the course, which is a practicum. You will design, carry out, and analyze an online experiment on a topic of your choice. This course is strictly limited to doctoral students in Sociology and related disciplines. In addition, only students who have taken at least an introductory statistics course (through linear regression) are eligible to enroll.
