Course — website/web application.

Developed in conjunction with Sean Everton, Co-Director and Michael Aspland, Faculty Associate for Research at the CORE Lab in the Defense Analysis Department at the Naval Postgraduate School

This course is an introduction to social network analysis, what it is, what it isn’t, and why it’s important. This five module series will provide an overview of social network analysis, how it differs from standard approaches, and what some of the misconceptions are. We will also look at some of the basic terms and concepts, and consider the various assumptions that underlie social network analysis.

This resource is available to participants in the CHDS self-study program, the University and Agency Partnership Initiative (UAPI), and CHDS alumni.  Access requires a login (about CHDS academic programs).
