Social problems: how do they arise? And how do we tackle them?
What is the “right” amount of policing? Can we sustain our healthcare system with a shrinking, aeging population? Under which conditions is it acceptable to enact censorship on social media? These are the type of questions we will tackle in the Master's programme Sociology: Contemporary Social Problems.
While we will never be able to provide you with a definitive answer to any of these questions, we will help you build an academic and professional toolkit that will help you critically and skillfully tackle these questions in your future career as a sociologist. You will acquire this toolkit by following in-depth theory and policy courses in the first half of the programme and by conducting your thesis research within an organisation as part of your internship in the second half of the programme.
