MPSDS Informational Session Webinar, November 2022
From Elisabeth Schneider
Please join us for an information session to learn more about the Michigan Program in Survey and Data Science on Thursday, November 10th, 9:30 am EST.
Michigan Program in Survey and Data Science (MPSDS) offers graduate degrees that combine ideas and techniques for producing and analyzing data about humans and our society. Join us to launch your career in this exciting and rewarding field in which scientists interpret the world through data.
The University of Michigan Program in Survey Methodology was established in 2001 seeking to train future generations of survey and data scientists. In 2021, we changed our name to the Michigan Program in Survey and Data Science. Our curriculum is concerned with a broad set of data sources including survey data, but also including social media posts, sensor data, and administrative records, as well as analytic methods for working with these new data sources. And we bring to data science a focus on data quality — which is not at the center of traditional data science. The new name speaks to what we teach and work on at the intersection of social research and data. The program offers doctorate and master of science degrees and a certificate through the University of Michigan. The program's home is the Institute for Social Research, the world's largest academically-based social science research institute.
