What methods should a PhD in political science be familiar with?

The Academic Practice Workshop on Friday, November 30, will provide an opportunity for faculty members and PhD students to engage in a lively discussion on the topic of research methods. The discussion will relate to the practical application and teaching of research methods, as well tackle the more philosophical questions about their role in exploring reality.

During the workshop participants will discuss what methods PhD student are likely to need in their future careers as political scientists? In the beginning the members of the panel will give a short description of the most common methods they encounter in their field, and afterwards critically assess current teaching practices at CEU. Students will also have the possibility to contribute to the discussion by expressing their own opinions and expectations about research methods teaching.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
