About

The Sociology programme from Masaryk University offers a rigorous course of instruction that will prepare you to investigate and understand the complexities of contemporary societies. 

Overview

The curriculum includes courses in classical and contemporary sociological theory, practical training in quantitative and qualitative research methods, and cultivation of your critical thinking and writing skills. The programme has been carefully designed to offer you a rich and complete sociological education, while simultaneously offering flexibility and opportunities for you to follow your personal interests.

The Sociology programme from Masaryk University offers intensive instruction in a smaller number of challenging courses with high credit values, rather than extensive instruction in a high number of less demanding courses. This model of teaching is used at top international universities and it also helps you to become flexible and to transition smoothly to doctoral degree programmes if you decide to continue your studies. Our curriculum focuses on independent study combined with consultations with experienced lecturers, which enables you to develop skills needed for autonomous, thorough, and creative problem-solving. 

Methods that help you solve problems and complete tasks are given priority over broad factual knowledge in sociology, which can quickly become obsolete, is too extensive to be mastered in a two-year course of studies, and is usually easily available in digital databases and other types of information sources. Skilled use of such databases (e.g. being able to determine the relevance or reliability of data and information) is one of the skills that you learn during your Master’s studies.

Career opportunities

The graduates are prepared to carry on individual analytical and conceptual work in different fields. They are prepared for jobs in various specialized areas.

A degree in sociology prepares you for further post-graduate study or for a professional career in fields ranging from state administration, marketing, and business to education, journalism, and the non-governmental sector. Our graduates often find employment in social and land development (at private companies, local authorities, labor offices, etc.) and in the market and public opinion research agencies.

The graduates are capable of individual and independent organizational and analytical work, and after enough experience also for professional leadership in project teams.
