More and more jobs are being created for IT professionals outside of the IT sector. Additionally, solutions to societal challenges will be sought within a transdisciplinary framework. Therefore, there is an increasing need in society for graduates of Computational Social Science. You will develop into a professional who can combine technical expertise with academic skills (e.g. analytical thinking, problem solving and effective communication) and who feels comfortable within diverse social and working environments. You will master the English language and intercultural skills in such a way that is necessary to work and move effectively in an international, multilingual world. Furthermore, our project based teaching will boost your professional network and ensure that you build up a substantial portfolio of real-world products that reflect your talents and level of expertise. As a graduate of Computational Social Science, you will thus have an excellent position in the labour market.
We expect you to be able to work in at least four professions that can be found in all types of sectors and organisations:
After your Bachelor's in Computational Social Science, you can continue your studies with a Master's programme.
