The ESSEXLab's mission is to further the use of controlled laboratory and field experiments to study key questions in the social sciences, from foundational and methodological issues to applied research.

This course will overview recent developments of experimental approaches in the social sciences. There are three main goals for this course:

  • to highlight the major methodological and foundational issues of using experimental methods in the social science
  • to look at recent developments of the experimental method in social sciences (e.g. the interaction between economics and psychology, field experiments, survey experiments)
  • to present the facilities and support researchers of the University of Essex can get from the ESSEXLab team
