Sociological contents in your postgraduate course

A very theoretical and inspirational field of study, sociology attracts great and open minds that like to theorise back and forth exploring all explanations to a given phenomenon. However, what sounds like a dreamy, wish-wash type of discipline accounts for the most demanding academics. As a sociologist is capable of explaining everything and anything, the academic foundation of any argumentation is essential and indispensable. Therefore, the Master of Sociology qualifies you as an expert in social research. Methodology, statistical analysis, qualitative and quantitative tools make up a large part of your study curriculum. Most universities enable you to choose research topics of your interest: employment, gender balance, welfare politics or intercultural comparative studies.

Career prospects as a Sociologist

Sociologists work, as the name suggests, in the social sphere. As a researcher, a consultant, a teacher or academic professional you pursue the traditional path of a sociologist, great thinkers and analysts. However, sociologists nowadays often pursue careers in politics, human resources, journalism and the media, marketing or the health sector. Focus on your own interests and competences and you will succeed at entering an attractive career.

As most Masters courses, Sociology requires an undergraduate degree in Sociology or Social science as a prerequisite. However, some universities may ask different or less restrictive admission criteria. Check out the list below to see which universities offer the programme.
