The Master in Sociology is a one-year, English-taught program containing 60 ECTS credits.

The program focuses on the sociological analysis of problems of social cohesion in contemporary Western societies, from both a micro perspective (family, social networks, crime) and from a macro perspective (welfare state, solidarity).

The Master's program has a theoretical and empirical research focus. This means that social problems and issues are translated into sociological research questions, which are then analyzed using sociological theories, models, advanced research methods and statistical techniques. In addition to this, students will then learn how policy solutions can be derived from the results of this sociological analysis, and to evaluate the implementation of these solutions.

The broad and in-depth knowledge acquired during your Sociology studies will enable you to make a substantial contribution to the analysis and solution of today's social problems.

specialisatie Extended Master Sociology

The Extended Master in Sociology (EMS) is a Master's program lasting 18 months (90 ECTS), divided into three semesters.

During the first semester, EMS students will do the course work of the regularone-year Master in Sociology at Tilburg University. During semesters two and three, students will follow a junior traineeship at a selected organization for 50% of their time, during which they will participate in existing (research) projects; for the other 50% of the time students will carry out research for - and write - the Master Thesis. The EMS combines academic education and scientific research during the Master's thesis trajectory with in-depth work experience in an organization in a way that is not possible in the one-year Master's program. 
The goal of the EMS is to provide students with relevant work experience and to enhance their research skills and knowledge.
