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.
