Would you like to do research connected to ethnic relations in your Master's Degree? With increasingly diverse societies, there is a growing demand for professionals who are trained in the field.

The ERI programme covers topics such as migration, integration, identity, the relationship between minorities and majorities, nationalism and prejudice. As a graduate of ERI (Master of Social Science) you are qualified to work in both the public as well as the private sector, in governmental administration or in various types of organisations.

The ERI programme welcomes applicants with a BA in Sociology, Social Pscyhology or Social and Cultural Anthropology. See entry requirements page for detailed information.
