The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is once again offering its summer workshops for researchers! Workshops range from Rational Choice Theories of Politics and Society to Survival Analysis, Event History Modeling, and Duration Analysis. There are so many fantastic choices across the country that we can hardly decide which we’d want to go to the most!
This is what the ICPSR website describes the workshops as:
Since 1963, the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) has offered the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research as a complement to its data services. The ICPSR Summer Program provides rigorous, hands-on training in statistical techniques, research methodologies, and data analysis. ICPSR Summer Program curses emphasize the integration of methodological strategies with the theoretical and practical concerns that arise in research on substantive issues. The Summer Program’s broad curriculum is designed to fulfill the needs of researchers throughout their careers. Participants in each year’s Summer Program generally represent about 30 different disciplines from more than 350 colleges, universities, and organizations around the world. Because of the premier quality of instruction and unparalleled opportunities for networking, the ICPSR Summer Program is internationally recognized as the leader for training in research methodologies and technologies used across the social, behavioral, and medical sciences.
Courses are available in 4-week sessions (June 26 – July 21, 2017 and July 24 – August 18, 2017) as well as shorter workshops lasting 3-to-5 days (beginning May 8). More details about the courses can be found here.
