      The MA Programme Sociology in European Context (SEC), currently affiliated with a Jean Monnet Chair in European Political Sociology, is a two-year English-language Master’s programme designed for international students interested in gaining in-depth knowledge of the state of the present-day field of sociology, including its theory and research methods. It features a strong core of sociology courses with a European focus, as well as additional events on European issues and debates.The Programme enhances students’ sociological understanding of complex and dynamic European societies, within the context of the deep challenges the European Union currently faces. Besides theory and methodology, the Programme is focused on the timely topics of international migration, human rights, social movements, civic engagement, European integration and society, capitalist change, democratic change and backlash, forms of critique and contestation, and nationalism. The courses are taught by international scholars, actively engaged in the international sociological community and on-going research. Next to in-depth sociological as well as interdisciplinary understanding of contemporary societies, the Programme deepens students’ vital skills and experiences for future careers, within or outside academia. In more practically oriented courses, students are introduced to the basics of applied social research and taught how to write a research project and a paper in English.
