Applied Data Analysis Workshops

The Q-Step workshops in Applied Data Analysis seek to provide additional support to students interested in Quantitative Methods for the Social Sciences. They aspire to raise interest in Applied Data Analysis amongst undergraduates and postgraduates, and embed quantitative literacy in the culture of the University.

The workshops are open to all, with priority given to Q-Step undergraduate students: Space is strictly limited to 20 places per workshop.

Introduction to Python for Social Scientists

Python is increasingly used by social scientists to collect, process and analyse new types of unstructured or semi-structured data, such as online text and social media data. It is an accessible, yet versatile programming language which is also broadly used for data science and machine learning tasks, combining multiple types of data, simulation and visualization. This workshop provides an introduction to basic programming notions in Python, and introduces some of the most useful packages used in social science research. No previous programming experience is required.. Full details
