The Master of Science in Sociology gives you the opportunty to study the relationship within and between groups, organizations, institutions and societies.

The Master's degree programme in Sociology is a two-year long study which requires a Bachelor's degree with specialization in sociology (or equivalent). This degree qualifies you for work which combines academic knowledge with practical problem solving. It also qualifies for further studies at doctoral level.

Programme Profile
The Master's degree programme includes a general introduction to theory and method, and one part where you may specialize within the elective courses you find most interesting:

  • Work and Organization
  • Culture and Media Sociology
  • Family and Childhood Sociology
  • Resource Management
  • Welfare
  • Differences and Integration
  • Rural District Sociology and Regional Politics

You will be given a comprehensive introduction to various sociological approaches, theories, topics and methods. You will be trained to conduct scientific investigation and research work through training in practical application of sociologic knowledge. This ability to transform academic knowledge into practical application makes sociologists popular on the labour market.

This degree programme is suited for those who are interested in how humans influence each other and shape the large and small communities to which we belong. With a sociologic background you can study the relationship within and between groups, organizations, institutions and societies.
