Welcome! Thank you for your interest in learning more about research in the Social Sciences (Anthropology; Communications; Criminology, Law, and Justice; Economics; Political Sciences; Psychology; and Sociology) at UIC.

As you explore the faculty expert guide, current and former projects, and featured research the LAS Committee on Social Science Research is confident that you will come to appreciate the strong commitment of the faculty to producing a wide range of research.
