The Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology
(ICS) is an institute for postgraduate studies of the Universities of Groningen, Utrecht, Nijmegen and Amsterdam (UvA), in the Netherlands.
The ICS offers a postgraduate program for a small selection of excellent graduates in one of the social and behavioral sciences (including economics, history, mathematics or computer sciences). The structured program consists of training in advanced theory construction and research methods by means of courses, tutorials, and individual study.
Supervision and monitoring are intense: each PhD student is supported by a personal supervision team and meetings on a regular basis. After four years, our PhD students will have finished their dissertation and will be well-prepared to enter the growing market for highly trained researchers in the social sciences.

Training and thesis supervision are in English. As the ICS is a joint venture of the universities of Groningen, Utrecht, Nijmegen and Amsterdam (UvA), PhD students reside either in Utrecht, Groningen, Nijmegen, or Amsterdam. Course locations alternate between Groningen, Utrecht, Nijmegen, and Amsterdam, with PhD students commuting during the period of each course.
