Open call for the IC3JM's postgraduate programs


IC3JM offers places for its postgraduate programs.

Master 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 specialized routes (Political Science, Sociology, or Economic History).

Master’s students can continue their research in the Doctorate in Social Sciences that the Department of Social Sciences of the UC3M offers in collaboration with IC3JM.

The Master's teaching staff is composed of members of IC3JM, the Department of Social Sciences and the Departments of Economics and Statistics of Carlos III University, and visiting professors.
