Master's Programme in Contemporary Societies
Welcome new students
How to understand the complex issues of contemporary societies?
As societies become increasingly diverse, change rapidly, and are confronted with expanding inequalities, datafication, and digitalization, there is a growing need for professionals trained and educated in the analysis of these dynamics. To become an expert in the analysis of contemporary societies, choose the Master's Programme in Contemporary Societies (COS).
In this programme, you choose from six major subjects: Global Development Studies, Social and Cultural Anthropology, Social and Public Policy, Social Data Science, Social Psychology, or Sociology. You also study themes like Data and Society, Ethnic Relations and Migration, Mind and Society, Socio-Cultural Shifts and Sources of Inequalities.
