The program combines rigorous, specialist training with multidisciplinary education, and teaches common types of social research design including both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. The Master in Social Research is a two-year programme starting in September each year. The Research Master consists of a core curriculum, specialization in a disciplinary track, internship, summerschool participation, and the writing of a thesis. Disciplinary tracks are: *Anthropology: Human security *Communication Science: Communication, Society and the Individual *Organization Sciences: Networking and Organizational Renewal *Political Science: Multilevel Governance *Sociology: Globalization and Diversity Students follow seminars and tutorials in small groups and benefit from intensive supervision.
