This four-semester Master programme aims to equip students with fresh theoretical perspectives and analytical skills to understand and analyse globally embedded social processes and outcomes. It focuses on the deep understanding of contemporary concepts and theories related to global social change and is designed to teach the students the importance of critical analysis of social processes and problems in a global versus local framework. Relying on both classic and contemporary insights we are going to help you in understanding and professionally interpreting global social change, globalization, population, migration, poverty, internal mechanisms of market society, global hegemony and dominance, the social impact and functioning of corporations, the role of technological development.

Our program is research-oriented. The curriculum includes several classes in quantitative and qualitative methodology to equip students with up-to-date research methods and analytical skills. You are going to learn how to collect and organize global and large-scale data in an efficient way; how to analyse comparative data, longitudinal data and social network data, and how to collect and analyse interviews, texts and social media contents. Students will also learn about the assessment of public policy interventions using both quantitative and participatory methods.
