This course gives you an overview of the current opportunities and the omnipresent reach of computational social science. The results are all around us, every day, reaching from the services provided by the world’s most valuable companies, over the hidden influence of governmental agencies, to the power of social and political movements. All of them study human behavior in order to shape it. In short, all of them do social science by computational means.

TOP REVIEWS FROM COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE METHODS
Don't expect to dive deep into computational tools, but it's a great introductory course into Computational Social Science and the professors are great.
Amazing gateway to doing real science in social science. Thank you, Professor Hilbert!
Good overview of computational social science concepts and serves to ignite interest in this exciting field.
Got a rudimentary level understanding of the power of computational tools like ML, SNA and ABM can help in analysis of human dynamics
