The Social Science Research Center (SSRC) was established at Mississippi State University in 1950 to promote, enhance and facilitate social science research and related scholarly activities.

Our monthly newsletter, The Chronicles, highlights each month’s new projects, publications and presentations, awards, personnel updates, and announcements.

Research Programs

The SSRC facilitates many research programs designed to collect data on different social aspects such as healthcare, tobacco control, the justice system, family well-being, and more.

The Center, from its very origins over sixty years ago, has emphasized interdisciplinary research. It has been a place where scientists from a number of disciplines, both on campus, and importantly, from other institutions can come together to work on common research problems.
