New course – Advanced Methods in Criminology

This fall I am teaching a PhD course, the course is listed as Crim 7301 – Seminar in Criminology Research and Analysis. The link to UT Dallas’s coursebook description is here, and I have placed a page on my blog that contains the syllabus. My blog is just nicer, since I can include more info. than I can directly on UTD’s page, as well as update material as I go.

The description behind the course in UT Dallas is pretty open, but I am mostly motivated to design a course to go over the regular quasi-experimental research designs I encounter most often in practice. Students also have a lab component which entails actually conducting such data analysis, with code snippets mostly in SPSS, R, and Stata.

For this, as well as other course materials if you cannot access Dropbox links feel free to email me and I will send the material directly.

As with many graduate level methods courses, it is heavily influenced by my personal experience. But I am open to suggestions in the future if you want a particular topic covered. For example I debated on including missing data analysis (e.g. multiple imputation, full information max. likelihood) for a week. If there was interest in that (or some other topic) I could definitely update the syllabus. Just come by for a chat or send me an email with your suggestion.


In general for students, if you have questions or would like my input on project ideas feel free to stop by. My current posted office hours are Tuesday and Friday, 9 to 11 am, but I am at my office during normal work hours for the whole week. (Knock if the door is closed, I am often in here.)
