Elective Module 3: Multivariate Analysis Methods and Statistics - Advanced Study (10 ECTS-Credits, 4 h)
Prerequisites for registration: successful completion of compulsory module 1 and/or compulsory module 2.
Learning Outcome: The students are able to investigate a research question with quantitative data based on theory and to apply structure-testing procedures to test hypotheses. The students can independently carry out the most common multivariate analysis methods with statistical software, interpret the results in a sociologically meaningful way and present them clearly with tables and graphics in research reports and presentations. The positive completion of the module enables the critical reception of quantitative-oriented contributions in the social science literature. Furthermore, the participants get their first insights into the possible uses of ¿big data¿ for the social sciences.
