Manifold varieties in this postgraduate degree

Does “Social Science” not describe a broad field of study rather than a particular degree course? Yes and no. Indeed social science embraces virtually everything and anything that connects – academically – to society, mankind and the human nature. Nevertheless, a postgraduate degree in social science exists, too. It intends at a greatest possible understanding and insight for society at large. And it allows for the greatest possible individualisation of your study.

In very broad terms, you analyse social phenomena. In a narrow sense, though, this allows for you to pick and choose whatever social phenomenon comes to mind. Naturally, you need to stick to your university’s curriculum. Nevertheless, a Master of Social Science usually focuses on the teaching of social research skills, statistics, scientific methodology, and the academic usage of theories to underlie your studies. The actual exemplary topics used to teach these skills are widely incumbent to your very own choice.

Career prospects in or with a Social Science degree

Social science embraces virtually any aspect of our human and societal life which is why you may enter attractive careers in virtually all professional sectors. However, your individual path depends on your personal interests, your prior qualifications, and a good motivation. While you can become a social researcher, an academic professional or a social worker, consultant or lobbyist, you may also opt for a professional entry as career changer in a company, the media, journalism or anything that comes to mind. Social and political scientists count to the academic alumna that most often start careers as career changers.
