What course should I choose?
Modern Regression Analysis is a great option for those who are just beginning to learn quantitative methods. Regression analysis is the departure for all advanced techniques.
If you are familiarized with this subject, you should check Quantitative Methods for Public Policy Analysis, in which you will learn a set of quantitative techniques appropriate for the estimation of the causal impact of policy interventions.
Two of our courses are state-of-the-art techniques in social sciences: in Experimental Methods you will be exposed to the research design that is considered to maximize the internal validity of your findings. Comparative Research Design is a survey of several ways in which the comparative method is practiced, including QCA, barely known in Mexico despite being uniquely suited in the analysis of complex causal configurations.
Finally, Case Study Research explores sound research designs for small-n comparative case studies and how they can be nested into mixed methods research designs.
