Social Science Research Symposium

The Social Science Research Symposium (SSRS) is a new initiative at McGill that will provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to present their research in the area of the social sciences. Presentations are 20-30 minutes long, followed by questions, and presented to an audience of peers. Research can be completed either independently or with a professor, and may still be in progress at the time it is presented. If you are interested in learning more, please email


The presentations would start in the fall, but we wanted to get the information out for people doing research over the summer. If you have any questions you may email as well.
