Social Science Research in Government, Business, & Non-Profit Careers: An Alumni Panel

Research is about solving real world problems. The skills you learn while writing a research paper or taking a research methods course are valued in careers in government, business, and the non-profit industry. Join us to learn how UMBC alumni are using social science research to support government and business clients.  The panel will be moderated by CS3’s Associate Director, Dr. Felipe Filomeno, and will be followed by networking and refreshments.
