Welcome to the homepage for the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates in Civil Conflict Management and Peace Science at the University of North Texas. The Summer 2013 REU will take place from June 3-July 26 on the University of North Texas campus in Denton, Texas.
The Department of Political Science at the University of North Texas has initiated a unique program to provide undergraduate students recruited from across the country the opportunity to engage in graduate-level research in conflict management and peace science in a senior faculty-mentored, in-residence, nine-week, Summer Research Experience (SRE) that integrates training in civil conflict management with training in computer simulation skills. Participants use computer simulation software to develop theoretical propositions that are tested empirically. Participants collect and analyze empirical data and report their findings in a public forum. Activities include workshops on theory development, computer simulations, research methodology, and the graduate school application process. At the conclusion of the program, students present their research at UNT and at a national political science conference. The program is led by UNT faculty members Dr. John T. Ishiyama and Dr. J. Michael Greig.
