SOC 395-02 - Advanced Special Topic: Social Network Analysis

4 credits (Spring)
This course offers an introduction to the analytic methods and conceptual perspectives of social network analysis (SNA). SNA is used to examine patterns of ties between multiple actors in a social system, where the actors can be defined as individual people, family units, groups, organizations, or nation states. This course will start by introducing the social network perspective, as well as several computational tools for social network analysis (e.g., R and Gephi). In addition to collecting, formatting and visualizing network data, we will learn about the mathematical properties of social networks.

Prerequisite: MAT 115 , SST 115 , or STA 209
