UConn GPSR Prepares You for a Career

At UConn, we train survey professionals, in traditional and cutting-edge methodologies, to gather data about attitudes, opinions, behaviors, or demographics and analyze that information to answer complex questions. Survey researchers play a critical role in market research, allowing businesses to measure the effectiveness of media campaigns, determine the feasibility of new products and services, and make strategic decisions. Surveys are also an effective tool for policy and program evaluation, helping public and political leaders, as well as non-profits, gauge public opinion on a variety of topics.

Survey research jobs are predicted to have a faster than average growth rate in the coming years, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting a 12% increase in the field between 2014 and 2024. Career advancement and a higher salary usually require an advanced education.
