ICPSR Summer Program

Registration for the 2013 ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research is now open!

Founded in 1963, the ICPSR Summer Program is recognized throughout the world as the preeminent forum for basic and advanced training in the methodologies and technologies of social science research. We serve a diverse multidisciplinary and international constituency. Our general instructional philosophy emphasizes the integration of methodological strategies with the theoretical and practical concerns that arise in research on substantive social issues. The ICPSR Summer Program also creates a unique and supportive social environment that facilitates professional networking and encourages the exchange of ideas about the theory and practice of social science research.

Note that some of the 3-5 Day Workshops will be held at Chapel Hill.  UNC Charlotte is a member of ICPSR and therefore you will be able to register at the discounted member rate.

Currently, this year’s Program lists 71 courses, 41 in the two four-week sessions, and 29 short workshops. Additional short courses will be added to the schedule over the next few weeks. Further detailed information about the 2013 ICPSR Summer Program, including course descriptions, schedule, faculty, registration instructions, and fee structure, is available on our website:

Scholarships are available to graduate students that are working in the areas of political science, public policy, public administration, sociology, psychology, education, and history.  Unless stated otherwise, the deadline for applying for these scholarships is April 30, 2013.
