Advanced quantitative methods

The course builds on knowledge in quantitative methods from Quantitative methods 7.5 ECTS or equivalent social science method courses.

The aim of the course is to provide the student with deeper knowledge about and skills in time series analysis. As time series analysis to a greater extent is used in the economic, historic and political science disciplines, this knowledge and skills are necessary for the student in order to understand and evaluate content in e.g.  international academic journals within Economic History and International relations. Additionally, the course introduces students to independently conduct time series analysis in statistical software and to exercises in presentation of results from quantitative analyses in written format.
