27th Summer School in Social Science Methods 10-25 August 2023


Registration for the 27th edition of the Summer School is OPEN NOW and will remain open until all places are filled or until the 14th of July - whichever is sooner.

The Summer School in Social Science Methods has been conceived for those who feel the need to refresh, deepen and widen their methodological knowledge and skills, whatever their professional situation: student, researcher or practitioner.

This year, once again, we are looking forward to welcoming you for two weeks of learning in August at the beautiful campus of Università della Svizzera italiana in Lugano!
