Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research
Welcome to the 2014 program!
We welcome you to the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research.
Last year, we celebrated a half century as a leading program in training in social science research methodologies and technologies. In 2014, we continue to serve diverse multidisciplinary and growing international constituencies, and are working to make our program even better known.
One of the Summer Program's outstanding strengths is its supportive and unique social environment. It facilitates participants' exchange of ideas, approaches, and techniques to develop theories and analyses of social science topics. It also advances professional networking.
When the 2014 schedule is finalized, it will list over 90 beginning and advanced courses at our primary location in Ann Arbor and several "off-site" institutions. They will build upon our foundational core of quantitative methods and substantive topics in a variety of workshops, classes, and special Blalock lectures.
We appreciate your interest in the ICPSR Summer Program, and I hope to see you as a participant this summer.
John A. Garcia, Interim Director
