The curriculum of Sociology in European Context (SEC) programme at Charles University  provides students with strong methodological groundings in both quantitative and qualitative sociological research methods. Students have the opportunity to develop their skills in data collection, their analysis and interpretation and to understand their usefulness in applied research. Special attention is paid to developing students’ critical thinking about scientific practice. Thus, graduates typically assume challenging positions as researchers, experts, analysts, and project managers in either the public sector, private companies and NGOs. The programme is taught by members of the Institute of Sociological Studies (ISS).. 

Key facts:

The advantage of the curriculum is that it provides students with a useful combination of theoretical and practice-oriented knowledge of modern European societies and research methods, giving graduates an excellent foundation for a fruitful career in either the public sector and non-profit organisations, or in private companies; the program also thoroughly prepares the student for subsequent doctoral study in social sciences.

Programme graduates have current knowledge of contemporary theories and research methods in sociology, including the major social problems in present-day European societies. They are qualified to independently carry out both quantitative and qualitative sociological research, and to analyse current social problems and processes of both national and international comparative scope. The study programme prepares them to work as researcher, expert, analyst or project manager in both public sector and non-profit organisations as well as in private companies, or to pursue an academic career.
