Computational Social Science at UChicago

Primary tabs

Computational Social Science is an emergent approach in which students apply the latest innovations in computer science and statistics to complex social questions.

Working with very big data, on a scale that far exceeds earlier research, computational researchers are devising innovative formal, statistical, and computational models to make important contributions across the social sciences.

The deadline is April 30th. UChicago is training their students for elite-level PhD admission in Sociology, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, History, and Anthropology.

Nearly all students admitted will receive a half-tuition grant in the first year, and a two-thirds tuition grant in the second.

UChicago also furnishes extraordinary support for professional placement, with paid internships between the first and second year, on-campus recruitment from prominent firms, and three years of work eligibility for international students as a recognized STEM program.

Students can learn more about the program, and find a link to apply, at

GRE scores can be submitted after April 30th, for students who do not have them in hand.
