The workshop provides a forum for the discussion of theoretical aspects and empirical applications of statistical modeling in the social sciences. The workshop is designed to have both pedagogical sessions and more specialized presentations from invited speakers.
The workshop will meet weekly each Thursday 4:15-6pm. Workshops
take place in Room 400 (the Graham Stuart Lounge) on the 4th floor of
Encina Hall West, except where noted in the schedule. The schedule of

The course is listed in three separate segments (353A, 353B, 353C), though students who take the course for credit generally make a full year (3 quarter) commitment. In addition to active participation in the weekly workshops, students who take the course for credit are required to write and present a research paper which draws on the ideas and methods discussed in the workshop series. This paper can be based on your own research area or can draw on materials presented in the workshop.
