GOVT-795 Comparative Politics Research Project (3)


This course consists of a semester-long student research project, culminating in an empirical paper. The student works with a faculty member of their choice to develop a research question, identify relevant empirical data, and conduct empirical analysis. The student and faculty member together determine meeting times, deadlines, and any other aspects of course design. The overall project assesses the student’s mastery of relevant bodies of secondary literature, selection of cases and other elements of research design, and the quality of empirical analysis. Method and topic are open, but the research project is in conversation with significant debates in comparative politics. Grading: A-F only. Permission: department.
