PHD-LEVEL COURSES IN THE SUBJECT-SPECIFIC QUALIFICATION PROGRAM:

PHD SEMINARS AND PHD COLLOQUIA BY GOV CHAIRS AND THE GRADUATE CENTER in the winter of 2019/20 in which participants can fundamentally earn credit for the subject-specific and/or subject-related qualification program:

PhD Colloquium European and Global Governance (Prof. Eugénia da Conceição-Heldt)
Mittwochs, 15:00-16:30, HfP Raum H.414

Data Management, Statistical Analysis, and Visualization with R: An Advanced Introduction
Fridays: Nov. 15, Nov. 29, Dec.13
Luca Messerschmidt, TUM School of Governance
Scholars across many different disciplines use R as their main statistical programming language.  R allows us to create fancy animated graphs, run complicated regressions, and write web content - and it is free of charge!  This seminar provides basic knowledge of how to use R for advanced social and political science research. At the same time, the course is an "advanced introduction" in that it is primarily designed for PhD students (open to exceptionally qualified Master's students with instructor's permission) who already have a solid knowledge of at least basic quantitative methods. In five practice-based sessions (scheduled across 3 days in November and December 2019) we will concentrate on how to gather and manage external data, run basic descriptive and bivariate statistics, conduct regression and outlier analyses, and visualize our results. The course requires a certain degree of autonomy and responsibility by the students to learn programming and use this course as a starting point for their own projects. The course counts for 1.33 SWS or 2 ECTS credits.
