Abstract:

This paper expands previous surveys of research methods teaching in political science programs to compare requirements across eight countries. The survey examines requirements for quantitative methods, research methods, and a student thesis, dissertation, or project for undergraduate political science degrees. The countries surveyed include Australia, Canada, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. The results show distinct differences by country in the levels of methods teaching required of undergraduates. Differences across countries are also striking in the extent to which student research is required. The results find low levels of training in the United States, but this model is not universal, with half of the survey countries consistently requiring methods teaching for a degree in political science.
