SSSPE Day 2014: New Directions in the Social Sciences

We invite you to join us for a formal exploration of new directions for research in the social sciences at Claremont Graduate University’s School of Social Science, Policy & Evaluation. Faculty, staff, and students will convene on Friday, September 5th to learn about the cutting-edge research being done in the Department of Economics, Department of Politics, and the Department of Psychology. This event is free to the public, and we strongly encourage anyone that is interested in these topics to join us in-person or online. Current students, prospective students and alumni are particularly encouraged to attend.
