Description

Advertisement

The Master in Sociology focuses on analysing modern societies and various social structures therein. Students learn to identify the various issues arising from these structures and broadly explore the related policies and social actions. The programme examines topics such as economic planning, management of social problems, and issues surrounding individual identities. It also prepares students for organisational analysis and management through courses on statistical analysis and multidisciplinary approaches to life courses. The programme is designed to develop specific skills, such as critical thinking about sociological concepts and ideas, creating and solving problems, and defining the terms of a research project in order to carry it out using an appropriate approach.

Available concentrations:

* Theories and methods
* Work placement
* Social policy basics
