Welcome to QAPS
The Program for Quantitative and Analytical Political Science (QAPS) was established in 2009 to support theoretical and quantitative research in political science and its dissemination. We support graduate students through QAPS fellowships, host post-doctoral research fellows, offer statistical and formal theory consulting, hold quantitative skills workshops, throw conferences, and organize the Quantitative Social Science Colloquium.
Currently, there are no future events. Please contact us if you would like us to provide a methodology workshop that will benefit your research agenda.
We are happy to announce exciting updates from QAPS! We recently welcomed Tolgahan Dilgin as the QAPS Statistical Services Manager. For those who remember Will Lowe, Tolgahan will be serving in a very similar role. Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming workshops, and for information on how to utilize our consultancy services.
