Social Sciences (Research MSc) AISSR
MSc Master of Science; Amsterdam Institute of Social Science Research (AISSR) Today's modern societies require flexible social scientists who are able to generate relevant knowledge about important social and cultural concerns. The Research Master's programme in Social Sciences is a two-year programme for motivated students with excellent academic records who wish to pursue a career in social science research in an academic setting or in private or governmental research institutes.
This programme offers advanced training in current social science theory and innovative methodologies in a rigorous and multidisciplinary social science research environment. It trains students to:
* conduct research along both empirical-analytical and interpretive lines;
* approach their research from a historical perspective;
* appreciate both local detail and the global context.
Higly motivated students can specialise in one of the following subjects:
* Contemporary Asian Studies
* Medical Anthropology and Sociology.
The programme consists of a core course, several thematic electives from specialised Master's programmes, several courses in the fields of theory and research methodology, an optional research-oriented internship with a company, government body or NGO, and an independent research project resulting in a manuscript or academic article, to be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed academic journal
