Course List: Cornell University
- Govt/Comm 3189 Taking America’s Pulse: Creating and Conducting a National Survey (Syllabus) (Next offered Fall 2020)
Public opinion polls are everywhere. Media, blogs, businesses, non-profits, government, and researchers all use polls to learn about what people believe, what they want, how they feel, and why! In this course, students will design, conduct, and analyze an original national-level public opinion survey. All survey questions will be determined based on students’ research interests. With this survey, students will literally take America’s pulse, finding out what the public thinks on the topics that students want to know about. Students will learn a variety of skills in this class, such as survey design, interviewing techniques, experimental techniques, and survey data analysis. There are no prerequisites, but students who have taken Govt/Comm 2169 will receive priority when registering.
