This interdisciplinary certificate gives students the opportunity to learn a range of basic social science skills, and focus their efforts in primary research opportunities. Undergraduates are increasingly seeking out research experience, whether to prepare for graduate or professional school, or further employment, and many majors in the social sciences offer research experiences as part of their core requirements. Through 4 courses in the scientific methods, students learn a broad range of research methods used in social science studies, understand how social science research is conducted, and present their research in a public forum.
