The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science welcomes postgraduate research students to the following advanced training event, organised by the Sociology pathway.

Event Description

This seminar will be of interest to doctoral students who will be using, or who would like to use, sequence analysis as a research method. Sequence analysis methods for the analysis of longitudinal data have been attracting increasing attention in the social sciences. Originally developed to analyse strings of DNA, sequence analysis methods are being applied in the social sciences to study life course processes including education and employment trajectories, partnership and parenthood trajectories, residential trajectories, and the relationships between these. The seminar will include presentations on the benefits and limitations of using sequence analysis methods in social research.


Registration is free of charge for doctoral students based in Scotland and is limited to 20 participants. Please email if you wish to register or would like further details.
