University of Essex and the Center for Empirical Analysis of Political Economy at Waseda University will co-organize the 2019 Essex Summer School (ESS) at Waseda University.
ESS will offer two courses, “Maximum Likelihood” and “Quantitative Text Analysis”. The courses are designed for students who have already learned intermediate statistics and regression analysis. The courses are open to any university and any department although the number of seats is limited (up to 20 students). Although our main targets are graduate students, the courses are also open to undergraduate students. The courses will be taught in English. The tuition fee is ￡200 per course.
Upon completion of the course, University of Essex will issue their formal certification. Thus, it may be possible to transfer the course’s credits (2 credits) to your university’s credits. Please ask your department and university to check whether the credits can be transferred. The courses’ credits can be transferred to the credits for the School of Political Science and Economics at Waseda University.
