Experimental Political Science

POLSCI 345

Hands-on introduction to experimental work in political science. Course divided into thirds. First third: what are political science theories and how can we test them? Second third: political science in the lab. We'll use behavioral games and incentivized experiments to explore political behavior; students will formulate, run, and write up results from their own game, using classmates as subjects. Last third: political science in the field. We'll turn to survey and field experiments to address external validity; students will create, field, and write up results from their own survey.
