Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Social networks are connections between nodes (actors) and links (connections between nodes). Social network analysis (SNA) is a process of studying those nodes and links with a systematic, quantitative approach to better understand how networks are constructed, what networks are capable of, and how networks can be disrupted. This course covers SNA using UCINET, a popular SNA tool to systematically understand terrorist connections in such way that allows for informed decisions on terrorist network disruption.
