Social Science Statistics Research PhD Programs

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am applying for PhD Statistics programs for Fall of 2015 and I am interested in research in the Social Sciences. Specifically, I am looking for schools that might have an emphasis or faculty conducting research in the fields of Criminology/Law/Forensics or possibly a related field in Sociology/Psychology.

I currently have University of Washington and Carnegie Mellon as my reach schools due to the fact that each has an emphasis/faculty in such fields, but I haven’t been able to find other "non-reach" schools with these qualities.

Has anyone come across any other Statistics Departments that specialize in these fields? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

I think UCLA has some faculty. It may be worth applying to Sociology departments too, since they have people who do computational social network analysis. I saw that UMn Statistics Dept hired a faculty member recently who had a PhD in Sociology (undergrad in mathematics).
