Get in-depth, internationally focused, social-scientific training. Study key issues in media, arts and society. Go on to a PhD or a career in research, policy, or consultancy.
This two-year research master is specially designed for academically talented and driven students, who have a nose for research in sociology, media studies, and arts and culture studies. The research master will train you to independently carry out high-quality research, at the same time giving you the chance to more clearly outline your own research interests, with the help of leading scholars in the field.More than half of all research master alumni proceed to do a PhD programme after graduation. But the research master is also an excellent steppingstone to a career outside the university, such as in applied social research, cultural policy, and consultancy in the media sector or art world.
