Master's programmes


An apple in the grass with autumn leaves.

A master's programme lasts 2 years (120 credits) and leads to a degree of Master of Science (MSc). Some master's programmes are thematic which means that you specialize in a particular field. Others contain more choice and make it possible for yourself to steer the focus of the programme.

To be eligible for a master's programme you must have a bachelor's degree.

The Department of Sociology offers the following master's programmes.

Apply for international master's programmes by 15 January!

Most of our master's programmes are now fully in English and are therefore included in the so-called "International admissions". This means that you must apply for all of the above programmes in the period October-January in order to begin a programme the following autumn.
