The course emphasis is on developing analytical abilities. Accordingly, the graded assignments provide a means for students to practice and demonstrate these abilities.

There are four graded assignments.

  • In-class quiz
  • In-class presentation of an agent-based modeling exercise
  • In-class presentation of a comparative analysis of some aspect of the Arab Spring.
  • Final exam
