A 2-Day Seminar hosted by Statistical Horizons and Taught by Stephen Borgatti, Ph.D. will teaching an introduction class to Social Network Analysis.
The field of social network analysis consists of a vocabulary of theoretical and mathematical concepts for investigating network phenomena, along with a distinctive data model and set of methodologies for collecting and analyzing network data.
This course provides an introduction to doing research on social networks. The course is very hands-on, emphasizing mastering the software and using the concepts and methods to answer research questions. It also covers use of network analysis in applied settings such as management consulting and criminology.
We will use the UCINET software package, which can be downloaded from http://tinyurl.com/ucinet. The software is not free, but can be used on a trial basis for 60 days. Please download the 32-bit version only. The course is heavily hands-on, so you must bring a laptop with UCINET installed. This course assumes no prior knowledge of network analysis, but does assume some background in social science research methods, including survey design and simple regression analysis.
