The programme structure strikes a balance between general core subjects – methodological and cross-curricular – and other specific optional subjects geared towards the students’ area of interest within social sciences. The master’s degree is thus centred around a subject group (Module 1) contributing the methodological tools common to all social sciences, and additional specific subjects (Module 2) depending on each student’s research interest and focusing on the field of knowledge in which their dissertation will be written (primarily Economics and Business, Law, Communication and Education).
Classes are offered over two semesters. Once students have obtained the university master’s degree, they may continue on to the doctoral degree programme.
