Research Lecture Series

The Doctoral Program Research Lecture Series (DPRLS) is a unique learning opportunity that emphasizes the acquisition of specific research knowledge, skills, and competencies. With its academic focus, the lecture series exposes doctoral students to a range of substantive, methodological, and statistical topics identified by doctoral students themselves as areas where additional training is needed. The overall aim of the DPRLS is to enhance the research training of current Silver School of Social Work doctoral students while also providing early research opportunities to other NYU graduate students.

Presenters at the series include senior NYU Silver faculty as well as other renowned researchers from NYU and beyond. Current doctoral students may also present their research through “science chats,” allowing them to contribute to the DPRLS while gaining valuable presentation experience. DPRLS workshops are offered during the fall and spring semesters.
