This course will introduce students to a variety of tools used to conduct empirical research in social science. This course begins by considering what it means to be scientific and the assumptions behind a scientific approach to social inquiry. Then the course turns to issues of research design and measurement, including sampling and survey techniques. Although the course provides an introduction to some of the statistical methods used by social scientists, including cross-tabulation and linear regression, emphasis is placed more on the application of these methods than on their mathematical foundations. Thus students will spend a fair amount of time in the computer lab working with real data and data-analytic software.

Contemporary Korea is a country of contradictions and multitudes. It is traditional and hyper-modern. It is conservative and progressive. It is a collective and full of individuals. It is and it isn’t. No one view of Korea will ever encapsulate its entirety but by tracing its culture, its history, and its people over time we can better understand how and why it has become the world’s 10th biggest economy, the producer of Oscar-winning movies and Billboard hits, and at the same time home to devastating suicide rates and lingering gender inequality. This course asks you to consider those contradictions. The class will operate primarily through a Socratic method with a focus on dialectical understanding. The professor will give lectures on the various topics and do so by utilizing a wide range of sources, ranging from print to video and social media. During the course of these lectures, students will be expected to engage with the content, question the material, discuss ideas, and ultimately come to their own conclusions.
