Learning how to make new discoveries that will contribute to a better understanding of the historical, social political and cultural processes that shape societies.
Are people living in ethnically diverse neighbourhoods more inclined to turn inwards and to ‘hunker down’ compared to people of ethnically homogeneous settings? Are there cross-country differences in the causes of hooliganism, and in the effectiveness of methods used to combat hooligans in different European countries?

In 2002 I graduated with a BA in sociology from a Romanian university. I knew that I wanted to continue my studies but due to certain conditions I was unable to do so until 2007, when I began looking for a suitable master program. A friend of mine has worked at Radboud University as part of an international project. She was the one that highly recommended the university and the country. I became curious and I started to search information over education in the Netherlands. I was very pleasant surprised to see how many high standard programs are available for English speaking students. Still, the Research Master in Social and Cultural Sciences in Nijmegen caught my attention because of its structure and focus that fit my interests best.
I was asked to come for an interview and I was impressed by the lack of formalisms and the open attitude of the professors here. In addition, I found the city delightful and the people quite warm and welcoming. My initial impressions were only strengthened after I moved in Nijmegen: I found a supportive environment, helpful people and by now, also some good friends. I appreciated not only the quality of the relationship here, but also the quality of education I received. It is due to these high standards of the master program that immediately after graduation I was appointed as PhD student. All in all, being part of the Research Master in Social and Cultural Sciences was for me a great opportunity and certainly an important step in my career as researcher.
