The Social Sciences Program began with the development of individual projects in 1993 and grew into a program in 1997. In 2009 the program ceased to be active. The Socio-Economics Program was re-established in April 2013 and, as of late 2015, is inactive. Formerly, the program was called the Social Science Program, with projects that explored the way people 'fit' in the forest.
