CESUN « Chargé d’études sociologiques et usages du numérique » course aims to train specialists in social science methodologies (interviews, observations, focus groups, statistical analyzes, etc.). They work in research offices, observatories or specialized institutes. The methodologies taught are considered in the light of their recent developments (in particular through the ever greater digitization of data).

In a complementary way, this training allows to take the measure of the evolutions generated by the multiplication of the digital devices in all the spheres of the company, by apprehending more particularly the fields of work and health. Within them, the issue of the role granted to uses and users is deciphered, which corresponds to the emerging profession of “user researcher”. The course also contributes to learning how to respond to study orders, with a view to planned or more experimental changes (with a view to evaluations, production of social impact indicators, etc.).

The specificity of this course is to train in the management of projects involving the deployment of digital devices, in all its phases (collection of needs, monitoring and communication, animation, evaluation, readjustment), which corresponds to the jobs of project managers in the digital field and facilitator of online communities.


  • Decipher the transformations induced by the massive implantation of digital devices, in all areas of social life, and become an actor in these transformations
  • Bring the point of view of uses and users, relative to the deployment of digital tools
  • Put research at the service of the professional project and the professional integration of students
