Master’s Programme in Contemporary Societies (COS) is a multidisciplinary, research-based Master’s Programme focusing on the key themes in the dynamics of contemporary societies both in a European and a global context. COS is our primary study programme where we offer our new, extensive selection of courses related to social data science. Almost all our courses are open for students of other programmes.
The social data science track of COS includes a possibility to specialize in official statistics and achieving the European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS) certificate. The EMOS studies include a minimum of 6 month paid training at Statistics Finland or another partner organization as well as a strongly recommended international research visit.
Doctoral Programme in Social Sciences covers the widest areas of social science research in Finland: media and communication studies, social and cultural anthropology, social psychology, social and public policy, social work, sociology, social data science, criminology and demography.
