The Social Research program at The City University of New York is designed for individuals who wish to pursue a career in applied social research and related areas, as well as for those who wish to upgrade their research skills. All courses are scheduled in the evening.
What you'll learn
The program offers four broad areas of research application: market research and consumer behavior; media research and analysis; research in international development; and research and policy analysis in the public and nonprofit sector. Students may focus on one of the program’s areas of specialization or, with faculty guidance, develop a customized course of study if a student is interested in an area of research other than those given above.
Graduates are prepared for professional research positions in business corporations, organizations involved with international development, government agencies and non-profit organizations.
Students train for careers in research through a combination of course work, research in their areas of specialization, and a supervised internship in a professional research setting. By carrying out a research project during the internship outside the university setting, students gain firsthand experience in the conduct of applied research and familiarity with practical problems in their field of interest.
Frequently, agencies and companies providing internships appoint former interns to full-time positions after graduation. Internship sites have included such companies and organizations as Community Service Society; CBS; Children’s Television Workshop; numerous state and city agencies; Warnako Corp.; Time-Warner, Inc.; Lou Harris Interactive; Nielsen Corp. and the United Nations. Students who are already working in research positions may use on-the-job projects as the basis of an internship, with permission of the program director.
