Research Methods in Empirical Economics

Units: 1.0
Elective Course
Concentrations: Economic Analysis and Quantitative Methods

This course will go through the nuts and bolts of how to do research in order to successfully write a dissertation or publish research to include where to get data, how to structure a paper, and how to use econometrics to make the paper more convincing. The new course would build upon some of the skills developed in Labor Economics and capture what the students were looking for when they asked for a follow-on, but hopefully also draw in other advanced students who may not have taken that course.
