Research Master in the Sociology of Culture, Media and the Arts
The Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC) and the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSW) offer a two-year Research Master's Programme in the Sociology of Culture, Media and the Arts.
This two-year Master's of Science (MSc) Programme is specially designed for talented and driven students, who have a nose for research within the field of sociology of culture and in media studies. Students with a relevant Master's diploma are eligible to apply for an abridged version of the programme.
The programme 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 top scholars in the field.
The Research Master curriculum consists out of theoretical courses, as well as quantitative and qualitative methodological training. You will put this knowledge intro practice in a mandatory research traineeship, in which you get the opportunity to assist an experienced scholar and work on a real-life research project. Through a study exchange in your second year you get the opportunity to further broaden your knowledge, and expand your international network.
All in all, the Research Master not only prepares you for a PhD in sociology, arts and culture studies, media studies and related fields, but is also a perfect stepping stone to a research-oriented career outside of a university.
