Social study is made up of a wide range of disciplines such as sociology, economics, public administration and several other social science disciplines.

It is especially the economic, political and social aspects that play a major role in social studies. But it is not the hardcore version of those topics you are going to have to study. You're going to have to learn theories and methods so that you can commit yourself in political debates, but do not know the fiercest economic theories and models, but just get a reasonable insight into them to understand why the world, or our own little duck pond hangs together in such a way it does.

It enables you to analyze political situations and describe them to others so they can better understand what is happening. In addition, you can make scientific studies.

Some of the areas you are going to concern yourself with are:

  • International politics of globalization and regionalization
  • Pedagogy
  • Social Studies Curriculum
  • Political communication and participation

The MSc in Social Science qualifies you for employment in secondary education, including the entire secondary area. Following recent high school reform is social science has become a compulsory subject, as well as elective subjects, which increases the potential for job afterwards. But you also have the opportunity to seek employment in private or public organizations, where education is not the primary workspace.
