CURRICULUM

Four-Week Sessions

An immersive learning experience, our four-week sessions allow you to focus on developing new methodological tools while building a community of friends, collaborators, mentors, and future colleagues. Our four-week courses cover introductory, intermediary, and advanced instruction in almost every area of methodology, from basic statistics to advanced Bayesian analysis and advanced multilevel modeling. Our four-week sessions also feature supplemental lectures and talks on important professional topics, such as data reproducibility, research transparency, and methodological issues related to the study of race, ethnicity, and gender. Our four-week sessions take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan; in 2017, the First Session runs from June 26 to July 21, and the Second Session runs from July 24 to August 18.
