Program Information

At the Summer Quantitative Reasoning Institute (SQRI), students will learn how to think like a social scientist by not only receiving instruction in how they study the world, but by designing and engaging in a sustained, three-week collaborative research project with peers and their faculty mentors.  Students in SQRI will present their analyses and results in writing and in public presentations, culminating at the end of the program in an oral exposition of their project's findings using text, figures, and graphs.  In short, SQRI will provide students with a realistic glimpse of what Carleton students experience when they develop their quantitative reasoning skills as a social science major in pursuit of careers in such diverse fields as law, science, academics, public policy and public administration, journalism, and information technology.
