If you already have a strong background in the application of SEM to analyze the covariance structure of multivariate data and you need to learn how to apply more advanced models to longitudinal data, this course is for you. We strongly recommend that you attend our five-day intensive summer institute on the foundations of SEM as a pre-requisite to taking this five-day advanced course. If you have not taken the foundations seminar, you should have extensive experience or have taken a graduate-level course on SEM before enrolling.
Participants from a variety of fields, including sociology, psychology, education, human development, marketing, business, biology, medicine, political science, and communication, will benefit from the course.
The course will support LISREL, Mplus or Laavan. Some assistance will be available for questions related to other structural modeling packages. Previous knowledge of LISREL, Mplus or Laavan is preferred but not required.
