High Point University has a unique opportunity for students to gain hands-on survey research experience during their undergraduate career. The Survey Research Center (SRC) conducts high-quality public affairs and social science research using a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods. Student work and ideas are at the core of the SRC’s approach to pursuing interdisciplinary research projects and communicating its findings to the public. The SRC’s High Point University Poll surveys people in North Carolina and beyond about crucial public affairs issues and reports the results as a public service. The Center also supports faculty and student professional development by managing and consulting on collaborative student-faculty research projects. The center has been featured on many main news channels such as ABC News, FoxNews, MSNBC, USA Today, New York Times and many more.
Our typical program alumnus possesses at least intermediate-level proficiency in a foreign language, has studied abroad, is familiar with quantitative research methods, and has completed advanced coursework in several different disciplines. Not surprisingly, these graduates are well prepared to stand out in numerous fields. In recent years our alumni have been accepted into the Peace Corps, joined PRA International as a proposal analyst, been commissioned as an Air Force intelligence officer, become an intelligence analyst at AT&T, and gone to work for major financial institutions, including Deutsche Bank in Europe.
