"If you aim to become a researcher in the field of sociology, the Master’s programme in Sociology and Social Research will give you the foundation to successfully achieve that goal. The teachers take great care when it comes to explaining concepts and methods. The lecturers always welcome questions or discussions and are easy to approach when students need help."
Anne van der Put (The Netherlands)
"SASR was a great addition to my Bachelor’s degree from University College Maastricht. I gained a lot of in-depth knowledge on methods and statistics. In my thesis, I researched the role social influence plays in health promotion. I am excited to continue this line of research in the PhD position I obtained at Utrecht University! Fellow students also found jobs outside academia. One of my friends now works as a researcher at the Algemene Rekenkamer (Netherlands Court of Audit), for instance. The programme is a great preparation for a career in research, either inside or outside the university."
