Practical: Social Networks
Students work on a number of computer assignments. These assignments consist of measuring, visualising, and analysing social networks by using network analysis methods. For example, students map out their own facebook network and reproduce the classic Stanley Milgram 6 six degrees of separation experiment in the information age. In addition they learn about the influence of certain frequently occurring network principles on both the functioning of groups and the dissemination of information.
