Advanced Methods at Purdue (AMAP) in the Behavioral, Health, and Social Sciences

Upcoming AMAP Events

Brown Bags (12:00-1:15PM)

Brown bags are AMAP's regular seminar series held on the first Tuesday of the month, where presenters bring their current work in various stages of completion. Come, bring your lunch, and engage! Presenters may ask advice of the group for a problem they are stuck on, present on a new method they are working out, or may come seeking practice talking about their work from a methodological angle. The atmosphere is friendly and supportive. If you are interested in presenting at a brown bag, please contact AMAP@purdue.edu.

Workshops 

AMAP hosts a variety of one and two-day workshops on a wide range of advanced methodological and statistical topics. The workshops are designed to provide participants -- which can include both faculty and graduate students -- with supplemental training on advanced topics in quantitative and qualitative methodology. The workshops are designed around methods that can be adequately covered in a single day and/or methods rarely covered in most graduate courses but that are useful for applied researchers.

Special Events

AMAP also hosts various other events such as invited lectures, symposiums, and receptions. These are great meet-and-greets that allow for networking both within and outside of Purdue.
