Programme description
​Our MA in Sociology is a logical next step for sociologists with an undergraduate degree and graduates of other social science disciplines.

You will deepen your appreciation of diversity, human behaviour, social organisation, social change, culture and nurture soft skills. Sociologists love to learn!

Become an analyst in social relations and processes. Examine the social challenges arising from globalisation. Master theories and methods and interpret the complex results of global social change and critical sociological analyses. You will develop critical thinking skills, evaluating global social change with a strong methodological approach.

Group discussions and debates are paramount to your learning experience in sociology. At Corvinus, you will benefit from studying in a smaller group and learning innovative methods to grasp hot sociological topics from our experienced teaching staff. You will work with students from all over the world, enriching dialogues and broadening your global network and outlook.

You will acquire a range of methodological techniques and interpret global social and economic databases. By opting to specialise in Global Social Studies, you can increase your perspectives of society, the socio-economic and political changes and societal behaviour.
