System dynamics is a systems science method for understanding the changing systems from an endogenous, feedback perspective using informal maps and formal models with computer simulation. This course will provide students with an introduction to the foundations of system dynamics modeling and formal simulation with an emphasis on applications in applied social, behavioral, and public health research and evaluation; basic ideas behind model formulation and simulation; uses of data and results from prior qualitative and quantitative research; and, how to review and critique system dynamics research in peer reviewed publications and grant reviews.

This course is designed for individuals interested in learning how to develop, use, and critique system dynamics simulation models in social, behavioral, and public health research and program evaluation.

Class size is limited to 15.
$650 General admission
$350 Non-profit/government employees (Additional Summer Institute classes)
$400 Non-profit/government employees (1st Summer Institute class)

This class will include both degree-seeking graduate students and practicing professionals. Individuals registering through Professional Development will not receive academic credit for the class.
