This course provides an introduction to social quantitative methods. It begins with a sociohistorical examination of research methodologies and their inseparable relationship to colonialism, racism, and patriarchy. The course then uses this critical lens to examine descriptive statistics, frequency distributions, bivariate associations, and data visualization. This course emphasizes the application of quantitative methods in the social sciences and requires no prior knowledge of statistics. Students will leave the course with a broader understanding of how statistics can be utilized in social scientific research.
