Training and Education

With approximately 60 predoctoral trainees, our training program guarantees that the PSTC can offer students personalized attention and provide them with many opportunities for collaborative research, close interaction with and mentoring from faculty, outstanding facilities, data acquisition, specialized language or methods courses, and more.

Trainees in our affiliated programs of Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, Public Health, and Sociology provide contagious enthusiasm for expanding traditional scholarly boundaries through their participation in coursework, faculty research, and the development of their own intellectual projects.

Our trainees conduct evidence-based research to understand and improve global equality, health, and welfare with disciplinary excellence and an interdisciplinary approach—making significant contributions to our global impact.
