PUT THE THEORY INTO PRACTICE. STUDY APPLIED SOCIAL SCIENCES.

Are you already working in a social science environment? Do you want to take your knowledge to the next level?

Then you can study applied social sciences and complete your Master's degree. Applied social science is the transfer of general theoretical assumptions to concrete social reality. Empirical methods are often used for this purpose, which you will study in detail in your Master of Applied Social Sciences.

During your studies, as a practitioner, you will have the opportunity to deepen your own thematic focus through learning paths such as the areas of society and diversity, social management and leadership, education, psychology and communication or health management. The "Design Your Degree" model means that you can put together almost all modules as you wish, depending on what interests you more and what you want to build your future career on. The focus of this Master's degree is on applied research as well as quantitative research methods. At the same time, you will immerse yourself in social megatrends that can later be useful for your daily work. This also includes topics such as digitalisation and ethics. At the end of your Master's degree in Social Sciences, you will be able to research and critically analyse specific fields of practice from the social sciences standpoint. At the same time, you will be able to participate confidently in socio-political discussions. It is an ideal path for you if you are aiming for a higher position within your profession.

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
