What Does a Social Scientist Do?

Monday, May 17 - Friday, May 21 at 1 to 3 p.m., daily
Hosted by: Diversity & Inclusion in Government Graduate Studies (DIGGS)
Application Deadline: Friday, April 16

DIGGS (Diversity & Inclusion in Government Graduate Studies) is a faculty-led initiative based at the University of Texas at Austin. We are excited to host our first-ever Workshop for Social Science Methods.

Our goal is to introduce students from underrepresented groups to the practice of graduate-level social science research.

The program is a week-long series of seminars geared towards students with an interest in studying government and political science at the graduate level. We will investigate exciting faculty research, while exploring the ins-and-outs of social science: an introduction in statistics, research design techniques, and theoretical tools.
