This is the website for the Spring 2014 edition of MGT 780: Social Network Analysis, a Ph.D. level course taught each Spring by Steve Borgatti at the University of Kentucky. The course is offered under the auspices of the LINKS Center at the Gatton College of Business and Economics, as well as the Dept. of Sociology. Here is the syllabus and the schedule for semester. Drop-ins welcome, both in person and online (all classes are streamed live via Adobe Connect). See the online access link for more information.

The focus of this course is doing social network research. As such, the focus is on the theoretical concepts and methodology of social network analysis. We do not focus on the empirical findings of the field to date. For that, I recommend MGT 795 Social Networks and Organizations taught by Dan Brass, usually in the Fall.

FYI, the website for last year's class is available here. The websites are very similar; I hope you will not confuse them.
