How does society deal with complex global problems like aging and migration? How do communities bounce back after tragic events? What role do social media play in political polarisation? How can analysing data help us find solutions? What are the ethical concerns in mining data?

These are big questions that require big answers. The two-year Research Master's programme in Societal Resilience identifies, investigates and develops solutions for broad social issues, using qualitative and quantitative methods to analyse big and small data. It's a truly multi-disciplinary and multi-methodological approach to society's most pressing challenges. And for that reason, it will appeal to students from a wide range of backgrounds. Getting this Master's degree will set you up for any career that involves working in teams to analyse problems and offer solutions using data: whether that's in academia, government policy, the non-profit sector, or the corporate world.

Waarom aan de Amsterdam VU?

  • You're on track to become the researcher of the future – someone who uses the latest in data techniques to solve tomorrow's social challenges.
  • It's a unique proposition: While other computational social science programmes focus more on data methodologies, Societal Resilience applies these methods to real-world problems.
  • Each thematic course is co-taught by social scientists from different backgrounds – for example, the diversity course is led by an anthropologist and a quantitative sociologist.
  • Amsterdam as a city – and the Netherlands as a country – is home to a host of international companies and research institutes. A great place to start for your internship – and your career.
  • VU Amsterdam has a reputation for research integrity, which means the programme also covers the ethical perspective on big data.

What can you do with Societal Resilience?
The skills training you'll receive during the programme will foster your ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams on data-intensive research projects. You'll learn how to communicate with colleagues who are specialists in particular topics, and how to ask the right questions when it comes to pulling data.
Where can you get started?
A Master's degree in Societal Resilience will help you understand your options for what comes next – the programme offers guest lectures every two weeks by speakers from the corporate world, NGOs, government departments and more.

Can you go straight into the business world?
Yes. Many large corporations are collecting vast amounts of data, but their understanding of what to do with that data is limited. There's a clear need for business analysts with experience in mining big data for a range of purposes.

Which further studies can you follow?
A Master's programme in Societal Resilience is also a great entry point to a PhD. Your research proposal and Master's thesis will be great preparation both for your PhD topic and when applying for funding.
