2018 ICPSR Summer Program: Raise your Quantitative Methods Game to the Next Level!

February 5, 2018

Do you get excited about Bayesian analysis and multivariate models? Do you want to dig deeper into survival analysis and spatial econometrics? Then don’t miss the 2018 ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research!

The ICPSR’s Summer Program is a comprehensive curriculum of intensive courses in research design, statistics, data analysis and social methodology. The program’s immersive sessions combine in-class instruction, group study and lectures by respected researchers, offering attendees important opportunities to collaborate with and learn from a diverse group of social scientists.

Held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Summer Program offers two four-week sessions, one held June 25 - July 20 and the second held July 23 - August 17. ICPSR also offers shorter, three- and five-day workshops in cities across the US and Canada. New for 2018, sessions focusing on methodological techniques will be held in Glasgow, Scotland and St. Gallen, Switzerland.

Each year, several members of the Drexel community attend these events, including Alexis Roth, Assistant Professor in Community Health and Prevention, Dornsife School of Public Health.

“I attended a great short session at the University of Massachusetts Amherst as part of the [2017] ICPSR Summer Programs,” Roth said. “The instructors were excellent and provided hands-on guidance that made the acquisition of advanced statistical skills fun!”

Drexel faculty, staff and students are eligible for tuition discounts for the Summer Program as a benefit of the University’s membership in ICPSR. Scholarships are also available to help offset the costs to attend the four-week sessions. Registration for the Summer Programs opens February 6, 2018 and runs through the end of May.

Drexel’s organizational membership in ICPSR is funded by the Office of Research, and Drexel University librarians connect faculty, staff and students to ICPSR’s resources and events to promote self-directed, life-long learning. Those resources include online analysis tools, teaching tools and technical help in using data, to name a few.
