Computational Social Sciences

Computational Social Science is the interdisciplinary science of complex social systems and their investigation through computational modeling and related techniques.

The aim of the Computational Social Science program is to provide our students with the relevant tools and skill set to investigate this new and exciting field through our unique degree programs.

The Computational Social Sciences section of the department administers the following programs:

Computational Social Science PhD program

This program is a more advanced option that is designed to train graduate students to be professional computational social scientists in academia, government, and/or business. Learn More

MAIS CSS Concentration

This concentration augments those in the Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies program. The intractability of many social problems calls for the new approaches provided by computational social science. Learn More

Graduate Certificate in Computational Social Science

This program is designed for students who seek training in computer simulation and related computational methods for analyzing social systems and processes. Learn More
