The ICPSR Summer Program is recognized throughout the world as a leading program providing basic and advanced training in a wide range of methodologies and techniques for research across the social, behavioral, and medical sciences. Our courses emphasize the integration of methodological strategies with the theoretical and practical concerns that arise in research on substantive issues. Our unique and supportive social environment facilitates professional networking and encourages the exchange of ideas about research theory and practice.
Founded in 1963 to address a lack of training opportunities in empirical research methods in the social sciences, the ICPSR Summer Program has since expanded dramatically in size and scope. Today, it serves a large and diverse international constituency. The 2015 Program offered 81 workshops and lectures in locations across the United States and Canada. Our participants included students, faculty, and researchers from more than 40 countries, 300 institutions, and 30 disciplines.
