Fall-Winter-Spring (may be taken multiple times, 1-9 quarters, 1.33 credits per quarter)

  1. Courses (undergrad) SOC SCI 240B winter: Course: social networks and complexity (open for undergrad enrollment 1.33 credits)
  2. Seminars 2009 SOC SCI 240A (fall 72100): Networks and Complexity - multicampus videoconference
  3. Seminars 2010 SOC SCI 240B (winter 72100): Course: social networks and complexity - Networks and Complexity (open for enrollment 1.33 credits) - multicampus videoconference
  • Winter 2010 Course Anthro 174A (computer lab) Human Social Complexity 2010 and World Cultures (course code 60640) T,Th 11:00-12:20 Rm 155 SST (this is not the fall writing course). Abstract: Run a powerful regression program that does estimates of the effects of causal factors for human culture variation. You select variables for study from a database of two thousand variables on features of the full range of diverse human cultures (the SCCS). Take the open source page R home with you and the database and software. Receive tutorials to learn these methods, learn from other student projects, and start from where they left off. Present an 10-minute powerpoint on your findings, and participate with the instructor, optionally, in preparing a journal publication. Learn how to understand complex human systems and write about them (the fall writing course has a proposal, draft, and 10 page paper).

Academic honesty information

Douglas R. White#Current_teaching:_courses

This is an answer to a student question, as follows:

I was emailing you to receive some information about the social Dynamics
and Complexity group and what it is exactly that you guys do.  I have
Professor Garfias for Anthropology of Latino Music and he was telling me I
should email you.  I am considering changing my major but I am not sure to
what yet, I am a math major and came across the social dynamics thing and
saw that it uses math.  Are there any undergraduate classes that can be
taken to give me an idea of what this is?

See: Courses

We are up to all kinds of things with complexity models for real world problems, if you are a math major this is an ideal area to be exposed to and we have developed a wiki devoted to learning and instruction, with math methods and models, software (mostly free, like R, NetworkX, etc), simulations and on and on. Take a look and browse through (this) http://intersci.ss.uci.edu/wiki/ where the links at the bottom take you to the indexing you can create an account and create pages to your hearts content. I have my courses on there including those I teach for complexity studies. If you go under current events you will see our speaker series, every two weeks, all videotaped as interactive teleconferences for UC profs and students, and there is a spring course for undergrads where ... listening to these speakers, or studying past streaming videos, you can do any one of these things, just one small thing as project is fine (1) dialog with speakers, profs, other students on the topics (2) find related ideas on the wiki (3) report on a topic (4) meet with an expert who teaches you how to boil down audio (or new audio) into short clips along with short takes from speaker pdf visuals and make math podcasts, modeling podcasts, complexity podcasts that you can post to the web as science podcasts. (5) a project of your own making or in dialog with a prof.WikiSysopWikiSysop 13:50, 20 February 2008 (PST)

The credit is 1.33 per quarter, can the series can be taken 1-2-3-4... or a countless number of times, with a truly TINY amount of work (but lots of great exposure) each time, much of the credit counting just for the exposure. I teach two other undergrad complexity courses per year, both in the fall. We have other offerings I could let you know about, some are at our web site google "social dynamics and complexity" from UCI search.

Thanks for asking, we are headed toward having a minor in this area approved next fall
