Longitudinal data measure characteristics on the experimental units repeatedly over time. It is an essential design to study temporal change and to establish causal relationships. The analysis of longitudinal data requires sophisticated methodologies due to the correlation introduced by repeated measurements. This course covers modern statistical techniques for longitudinal data from an applied perspective.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
