Program description

The Master's in Social Policy and Social Interventions focuses on such questions as 'What is the relationship between decentralised care and changes in family relationships?'

The Master's programme in Social Policy and Social Interventions provides you with the methodologies and skills to perform independent research in a sound and scientific manner. Graduates of this programme will be able to carry out and evaluate practical and policy-focused research on social policy and social interventions. They will have the academic and professional skills to research, implement, manage and evaluate policy and intervention processes.

In this one-year taught Master's programme, you will study social policy and social interventions using an interdisciplinary approach combining sociology, psychology, anthropology and history. You study such issues as welfare states, a variety of social policies and interventions, organisation and communication, and statistical analysis techniques. You then complete a Master's project, a research project related to policy development and intervention practices. You work in a small, supervised project group with students who have chosen the same theme; at the same time you work on your individual Master's thesis, which completes the programme.
