Graduate students apply to the Graduate program in Mathematical Behavioral Sciences. The Group in Social Dynamics and Complexity is developing several emphases within the program.
The Graduate Emphasis in Social Dynamics and Complexity emphases: Mathematical and statistical modeling, network analysis, molecular anthropology, population genetics inferences, the cultural transduction of stress, proximal effects in coevolution, adaptive potential, content analysis.
Additionally, our general emphasis on computational and research methods can strongly prepare graduate students for teaching and employment opportunities in both academic and applied careers.
Graduate students at UCI may satisfy the requirements, in addition to those of MBS by completing the three-quarter Proseminar and two additional courses, with the approval of the graduate advisor.
Other emphasis under development may include disciplinary topics such as Social Dynamics, Decision Analysis and Evolutionary Game Theory and/or Social Dynamics and Complexity
