Ph.D. students interested in acquiring substantial advanced training in social statistics may elect to complete a CSSS Track through their home department (if available) or through the Individual Concentration in Social Statistics. CSSS Tracks typically involve successfully completing at least four advanced courses in social statistics and attending the CSSS seminar for a minimum of one quarter. Several tracks also help students meet internal departmental requirements. Completion of a CSSS Track helps prepare graduate students for independent research and teaching careers in quantitative social sciences. Close to 300 Ph.D. students have completed CSSS Tracks since they were established; a majority of these students now hold tenure track faculty positions.
