Research Methods

Learning about research methods

One purpose of this website is to aid in the instruction of social science research methods here at Wesleyan. If you are taking Government (QAC) 201, Government 204, or  Government 366 then this website might even be used as part of your instruction here. The most useful subjects will be in the “Research” section.


Regardless of what you plan to do it is always important to be in touch with your primary advisor and/or course instructor.  They may have advice or instructions that vary from those presented here.  This website is meant to be used as a general guide, to supplement — not replace — what they provide.
