Life Course Research

Postgraduate Module, Department of Sociology, University of Oxford, 2021

I teach Life Course Research to postgraduate students at the Department of Sociology, co-convened with Jenn Dowd. The course is primarily taught in R, and entails a broad introduction to Life Course Research (Classical Data and Methods, Health, Family Demography and Fertility, Transitions to Adulthood, but also with a focus on methods such as Event History Analysis and Sequene Analysis), with a specific focus on prospective (and predictive) designs, too. It also utilizes the Fragile Familes data, generously made available at the OPR. The module handbook can be found here.
