Our Program

Humber’s Research Analyst graduate certificate program consists of two academic semesters, followed by a twelve-week placement.

In the current knowledge economy and information age, the demand for social, market and marketing research has increased substantially as organizations have recognized the growing need for research on which key policy and strategic decisions are based.

The Research Analyst program focuses on the theoretical, practical and ethical underpinnings of research, while also equipping you with the statistical, technical and professional skills necessary to do applied research in a variety of different settings throughout the public and private sectors.

The first two semesters of the program focus on all of the major aspects of the research process including research design, information retrieval and evaluation, data collection, analysis and interpretation, and the preparation and presentation of the research findings.

Special features of the program include an emphasis on professional, ethical and legal implications when designing research studies, new research technologies for data collection, analysis, presentation, proposal writing, research entrepreneurship, project management, and program evaluation.
