The Sociology and Social Research programme at the University of Trento provides advanced training for positions of social researcher in private research institutes in the field of marketing and communication, customer satisfaction and opinion research, as well as in public research institutions (for instance, institutes and foundations involved in education research or in the analysis of labor market and welfare trends).
Specifically, this master programme equips students with in-depth mastery of statistical and qualitative techniques to analyse social trends. The methodology courses of the first year have a strong applied orientation, as they entail the active participation of students in laboratory activities and seminars (e.g. learning how to design a questionnaire, building a web-survey, learning how to use statistical softwares, carrying out in-depth interviews and focus groups).
This master course is a two-year programme that provides advanced training for positions of social researcher in private research institutes in the field of marketing and communication, customer satisfaction and opinion research, as well as in public research institutions (for instance, institutes and foundations involved in education research or in the analysis of labor market and welfare trends).This master course also provides a strong background for students interested in doctoral studies in the field of sociology and social research.
The number of international exchange opportunities offered to students by the University of Trento is wide at all levels of studies (bachelor, master and doctorate). The University management is strongly convinced that an experience in two different institutions can do a lot to improve the skills of the students and to strengthen their curriculum for their occupational future at a national, European and international level.
