CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IN QUANTITATIVE POLITICAL SCIENCE METHODS
The Certificate in Quantitative Political Science Methods is a program designed to lead to an understanding
of how social scientists pose research questions, design tests of hypotheses, and analyze quantifiable
information. These are valuable skills for the workforce and graduate school, as well as for all informed

information they read about in the newspaper or hear about on television.
