This Sociology and Social Research degree from University of Trento also provides a strong background for students interested in doctoral studies in the field of sociology and social research.
Specifically, this master programme equips students with in-depth mastery of statistical and qualitative techniques to analyse social trends. The methodology courses of the first year have a strong applied orientation, as they entail the active participation of students in laboratory activities and seminars (e.g. learning how to design a questionnaire, building a web-survey, learning how to use statistical softwares, carrying out in-depth interviews and focus groups).
The master has a strong international orientation. The courses are taught in English, students are funded to spend study periods abroad in European and non European countries, and we have double degree agreements with the prestigious universities of Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), Tilburg (the Netherlands), Bamberg (Germany), Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt (Germany), Higher School of Economics National Research University St. Petersburg (Russia), as well as a double degree with the universities of Karls-Franzens-Universität Graz (Austria), Masaryk University (Czech Republic) in the framework of the Cultural Sociology Degree.
