7th Annual Arizona Methods Workshops
January 5/6/7th (Thu, Fri, Sat) 2017

These 3-day workshops are hosted by the School of Sociology at the University of Arizona.  The goal is to share the methodological expertise of our school and college with the wider community of social scientists.  The workshop topics and instructors vary from year to year. The workshops are small and offer time for practical, hands-on work. The atmosphere is informal and is enhanced by optional social events (lunch, happy hour) that allow participants, instructors, as well as UA Sociology faculty and students time to mingle.
