On this programme, you will acquire advanced knowledge and skills in social analysis. Through developing advanced methodological and analytical knowledge and skills, you will be able to study many important contemporary global and local social problems and risks. You will acquire knowledge of the construction of social problems, and gain insight into and develop knowledge and reflexive skills with regard to the construction and perception of social problems, as well as to the way in which scientific problems relate to various social issues. The role of social science in society is discussed and your studies will contribute to an understanding of the possibilities and limitations in terms of resolving or dealing with various social problems.
