In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Social sciences help students to better understand the interactions and systems within human society. Topics covered may include how communities and populations form governments, make laws, develop economic systems, or how individuals make decisions.

This programme gives you the opportunity to conduct change work and to improve your knowledge in national as well as international social work. Studies at the Master's level implies an opportunity for you to deepen your knowledge and broaden your career opportunities.

The programme

Social work concerns the conditions of life, needs, and experiences of socially vulnerable people. The point of departure is to try to understand and explain social phenomena and problems at the individual, group and societal levels, and also to create opportunities for change. The understanding of social issues builds on the perspectives of systems, power and rights, and the analysis of these is often intersectional. You will develop a practical understanding of problem-solving and change processes when it comes to people in socially vulnerable situations.... [-]

We live in interesting times. Our news tells us that the human world is changing rapidly – political and economic institutions once seen as permanent appear increasingly fragile and subject to change. Yet, despite various moments of so-called ‘crisis’ in which change might be expected, we see significant levels of continuity with respect to the underlying policies and actors governing that world. Is the US losing power? Are the so-called BRICs taking over? What is the future of democracy? Is conflict increasing? And, why does neoliberalism remain so resilient despite the financial crisis and ongoing economic instability? Only through developing expertise and forming new knowledge can we begin to understand these questions towards ensuring the world is managed optimally.... [-]

These are turbulent political times. International power bases are shifting. Political, economic and military threats merge and reform, presenting new political challenges. Examples like China and Russia prompt us to rethink the widely held belief that democratic reform will follow on the heels of economic progress. In these days of the “war on terror,” it is also more and more difficult to know what a war is, who fights it, how it starts and how it can end. In the meantime, global inequality is increasing. Half of the world’s population lives in severe poverty, many of them in conflict-ridden regions and/or under failing governments. Problems of development – malnutrition, poverty, preventable diseases – can be solved by a global effort, so why does it not happen?... [-]

Communication for Development is an interdisciplinary field of study and practice, combining studies on culture, communication and development and integrating them with practical fieldwork. It explores the use of communication – both as a tool and as a way of articulating processes of social change – within the contexts of globalisation.

In this programme, where the form of study strives to be conducive to the course content, progression lies in the group dynamic process as well as in the coursework itself. The multidisciplinary nature of the subject means that the same content should provide in-depth knowledge for students with different backgrounds. One major point of this pedagogical approach is to bring together different experiences. The group diversity should allow students to deepen their knowledge of their own major as well as gain a sufficient overview based on the academic backgrounds and practical experiences of other students. This will allow them to be able to work both interdisciplinary and transcultural in their future professions.... [-]
