Helping Scholars in the Social Sciences Succeed

Monday, August 28, 2017

Students working in Gross HallStudents have returned, classes have begun, and research projects are getting underway.

While the end of summer vacation can sometimes be bittersweet, Duke University’s campus is buzzing once again with excitement for the new academic year.

To help students and scholars in the social sciences thrive this year, the Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) has multiple workshops scheduled to build knowledge of social science methods and skills.

This semester, topics include general ones like planning research, collecting data, and designing surveys as well as more specific topics like data analysis using SAS, NVivo 11 for qualitative analysis, and developing interactive websites with R and Shiny.

For this semester’s schedule, visit the listing of events on the Duke Event Calendar.

SSRI workshops run throughout the year and are open to anyone at Duke free of charge.
