The master program in Cultural Sociology provides you with specialized socio-cultural analytical and methodological competencies that support a career as project manager and facilitator of transformation processes or as a relations manager in (inter-organizational) associations. You will become an attractive asset for organizations and companies that work with local development and interaction with users, citizens, clients, and consumers.
You should choose this master program if you have an interest in the relationship between society and people and in the cultural encounters that happen every time people meet across for instance age, professions, nationality, gender, health, and religion.
The Master of Social Sciences in Cultural Sociology builds on the bachelor program in Sociology and Cultural Analysis offered at the University of Southern Denmark in Esbjerg. Access to the master program in Cultural Sociology is granted to those who hold a bachelor degree in one of the Social Sciences or Human Sciences.
A practice-oriented approach to learning
The master program has a strong practical focus where students are given the opportunity to apply socio-cultural theories and methods in practice. During the education program, you will cooperate with different organizations and companies, where you will develop and complete projects and studies during each semester. This way you achieve a practical understanding and can build up a network, which is an advantage when you look for a job after graduation.
To ensure the short path to employment for all graduates, the program is continually developed in close cooperation with municipal and regional agencies as well as relevant organizations such as immigration service departments, chambers of commerce and consultancy companies.
Access is granted to students holding a bachelor degree, which can be argued to be equivalent to the Bachelor of Science in Sociology and Cultural Analysis offered at the University of Southern Denmark.
Students with a bachelor degree in one of the other Social Sciences (e.g. Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, and Law) and from the Humanities (e.g. Communication, Religion, Journalism, and History) will be evaluated and decided by the Study Board.
Students with a professional bachelor’s degree (e.g. social worker, police officer, primary school teacher) will be evaluated and decided by the Study Board.
It is possible to supplement your degree with courses at the BSc. Sociology and Cultural Analysis before starting at the master program.
