Places are now available at for the third edition of the postgraduate programs.
The call is now open for the third edition of the IC3JM postgraduate programs: the Master’s in Social Sciences, of two years, and the Master’s in Political and Electoral Analysis, of one year.
Master's in Social Sciences
This is an academic research Master’s, of two years (120 credits), wholly given in English.
It aspires to be a Master’s with an international reputation within the Social Sciences, as demanding, intense and rigorous as the best postgraduate programs in the United States and Europe.
The aim of this Master’s is to teach students to undertake high level research in the key themes of the social sciences. The Master’s provides advanced and interdisciplinary training in the social sciences, by stressing the importance of methodology and quantitative analysis.
The Master’s covers three fields: Political Science, Sociology and Economic History.
In the first year, all courses are common, with two differentiated blocks: on the one hand, substantive courses in sociological analysis, social stratification, comparative politics, economic history and political economy; on the other, methodological courses in statistics, game theory and research design.
In the second year, there are some additional methodological courses and the student can choose one of the three specializing routes (Political Science, Sociology and Economic History).
Master’s students can continue their research on the Doctorate in Social Sciences that the Department of Social Sciences of the UC3M offers in collaboration with the IC3JM.
The faculty comprises members of IC3JM, the Department of Social Sciences and the Departments of Economics and Statistics, of the Carlos III University.
Furthermore, in each edition of the Master’s internationally prestigious external professors will be invited to lecture. In the fourth-month period of Spring, external professors include Irena Kogan (University of Mannheim), Luis de la Calle (CIDE, Mexico), José Fernández Albertos (CSIC, Madrid), and Joaquín Artés (Madrid Complutense University). The four-monthly period is completed with courses by three members of IC3JM, Javier Polavieja, Rickard Sandell, Bryan Rooney, and by Helena Veiga, Statistics professor at UC3M.
