Societal Resilience (Research Master’s programme)

Duration: 1 hour

Studying Societal Resilience?

How does society deal with complex global problems like aging and migration? How do communities bounce back after tragic events? What role do social media play in political polarisation? How can analysing data help us find solutions? What are the ethical concerns in mining data?

These are big questions that require big answers. The two-year Research Master’s programme in Societal Resilience identifies, investigates and develops solutions for broad social issues, using qualitative and quantitative methods to analyse big and small data. It’s a truly multi-disciplinary and multi-methodological approach to society’s most pressing challenges. And for that reason, it will appeal to students from a wide range of backgrounds. Getting this Master’s degree will set you up for any career that involves working in teams to analyse problems and offer solutions using data: whether that’s in academia, government policy, the non-profit sector, or the corporate world.
