How to understand the complex issues of contemporary societies?

As societies become increasingly diverse, change rapidly, and are confronted with inequalities, there is a growing need for professionals trained in the analysis of these dynamics. To become an expert in the analysis of contemporary societies, choose the Master's Programme in Contemporary Societies (COS).

In this programme, you choose from five major subjects: sociology, social and public policy, social psychology, social and cultural anthropology or development studies. You also study themes like ethnic relations and migration, mind and society, socio-cultural shifts and sources of inequalities.
