The aim of this course is to give an overview on how quantitative models and data analysis are used in various fields of social sciences. The lectures will be given in part by various researchers from within and outside the university who will focus on a quantitative aspect of their respective fields.

We will give an overview on broad variety of topics that will be the subject of more specialized courses in the QSS curriculum. The objective is to showcase at an early stage how these topics form an overall cohesive picture.
