The Survey Research and Methodology (SRAM) Program at UNL offers two degrees: Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. Both degrees are strongly cross-disciplinary.
The M.S. program is designed to provide students with comprehensive expertise in survey methodology, equipping them to conduct survey research and analysis in a wide range of fields in the public and private sectors, including health, education, media, official statistics, and polling. The M.S. program is a two-year non-thesis program which includes an internship with an external organization, agency or company.
The Ph.D. program offers specialization opportunities in areas such as data analysis, social and cognitive survey research, questionnaire design, and cross-cultural and cross-national survey research. The program is designed as a four-year program and requires a dissertation of original work that advances knowledge in the field of survey methodology. In addition to advanced opportunities in government, business, and non-profit sectors, Ph.D. graduates are likely to have opportunities within academic settings.
