Program faculty are drawn from the research staff at the Institute for Social Research and from affiliated departments on campus, including Psychology, Sociology, Statistics, Biostatistics, and Communication Studies. The faculty employs graduate students as research assistants on funded research projects, providing opportunities for students to integrate education and experience during a program of study.
