Master’s in Sociological Research

Overview and Objectives


The Master’s in Sociological Research is characterized by the desire to join theoretical knowledge with empirical analyses in the sociological process.

The program trains students in the various theoretical and conceptual methods and tools used in the field, so they can be prepared for the many careers in sociology, namely in public research, local community research, work in observatories, and in the private, voluntary and para-public sectors (market research in these sectors, consultancy in the socioeconomic field, conducting behavioral surveys, opinion polls, and working in social services, etc.).

Graduates of this program can subsequently pursue a doctorate in France or abroad.

 Our students leave having acquired strong research skills, both qualitative (interviews, observation, visual sociology) and quantitative (questionnaires, statistical data analysis, textual analysis, using the Internet for research in social sciences), as well as advanced theoretical skills in the areas of sociology of the family, sociology of health and illness, sociology of work, sociology of gender and sociology of technology and social interactions.
