The goal of the Master of Social Sciences at Carlos III University of Madrid is to train students to do high-level research in the core topics of the Social Sciences. The Master provides an advanced, interdisciplinary training in Social Sciences, with a strong emphaisis on methodological issues and quantitative techniques, so that the students acquire the skills required for research design, hypothesis formulation, and data analysis.
The Master covers three areas: political science, sociology, and economic history. During the first year, all courses are mandatory, with two differentiated blocs. On the one hand, substantive courses in sociological analysis, social stratification, comparative politics, economic history and political economy; on the other, methodological courses (statistics, game theory, and research design). During the second year, there are a few methodological courses and students can choose among three different specialization paths (political science, sociology, economic history).
