Syllabus:

The course aims to provide students with a perspective on the role of social sciences within contemporary society, especially in Australia, and teach a number of fundamental skills which are expected of professional social scientists in the contemporary world. These skills are an important acquisition for students, whether they seek to gain employment in the public and private sectors or to proceed to higher level research within their chosen social discipline. Students of this course should emerge from it with a sound background in the main sources of social science information and data available in Australia, and the major methods of analysing information from these sources. Topics include measurement, exploratory data analysis, descriptive statistics, data collection, hypothesis testing, regression analysis, correlation, and graphical procedures. Computer Workshops provide hands-on training and skills in data analysis. No prior background or knowledge in computing, mathematics or statistics is assumed. The aim is to teach students a range of data analysis techniques and how to interpret the results.
