There are various methods to research topics in social sciences. In this class, students learn how to research social sciences by means of mathematical models and experiments.
In this class, students learn the introduction to game theory, evolutionary game theory, game and questionnaire experiments and then this class makes students think about the application these methods to their master thesis. The students can learn that the various methods developed by various research fields can be applied to the students' research.
Game theory, Evolutionary game theory, game experiments, questionnaire experiments
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
In the class students learn the basis knowledge of game theory, evolutionary game theory, game experiments and questionnaire experiments and also the example of these methods which are applied to real situations. Then, students may have a chance to experience the experiments.

|Class 6||cultural evolution and innovation||Learn "cultural evolution" study which can be applicable to the innovation study.|
|Class 7||Group discussion||Students in each group discuss how to apply what they have learned in this class to real situations.|
To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Attendance is required.
