Communication Research/Media Effects
Options: Volunteer Basis, Potential for UROP Funding

Cultural Indicators is a research project that documents and tracks images and portrayals on US television. The project is a collaboration between BU, the University of Delaware and UMass/Amherst. Student research assistants work on all aspects of the project, including data collection, coding, and presentation. Past students have attended conferences with the principal investigators. This is a useful opportunity for those who would like to gain expertise working in a social science setting, and for those interested in media research. Some stipends are available.
