About

During this Comparative Social Research programme from HSE University, students have the opportunity to engage in an international learning environment, with lecturers and other learners from all over the world. 

Overview

The Master Degree in Comparative Social Research delivered by HSE University provides students with the theoretical and methodological skills they need to investigate and analyse similarities and differences among nations, cultures, and other social groups in order to understand the evolution of contemporary societies, social issues, and conflicts around the globe.

In this Comparative Social Research programme from HSE University, students take part in international research projects, participate in research internships, either in Russia or at one of our partner institutions aboard, as well as have an opportunity to earn a second degree in Germany or France through one of our double degree tracks.

Programme goal

The aim of our programme is to provide the theoretical and methodological tools required to shed light on differences between nations, cultures and other social groups. During seminars and lectures, our students investigate social problems and issues in today's world from a perspective of interconnectedness between the social action of individuals at different levels of collectivity, for example, at the level of society or culture.

Our programme provides in-depth insights into how individuals approach social reality, using either quantitative methodology for investigating norms and values or qualitative methodology for assessing individuals’ interpretations of their world.

Career Opportunities

As holders of an MA in social science, graduates of the programme are well-equipped for international careers as social researchers. Many of our students go on to doctoral programmes at our partner universities (or at HSE). Others begin their careers as research associates at international organizations such as the World Bank, the International Labour Organization, OECD, UNESCO, and UNICEF.
