In the first block of the first semester, we will offer the following courses (their names are identical to the names of the 4 trajectories). Students will choose 2 out of these 4 courses of 6 ECTS each:
- Gender, Sexuality and Culture
- Migration, Race and Ethnicity
- Social Problems and Public Policy
- Economy, Work and Culture
In the second and third block students will follow 2 out of 4 courses of 9 ECTS each:
- Body, Emotions and Culture
- Vulnerability and Inequality
- Welfare States and Markets: Care, Work, Education
- Sustainable Cities
In the second semester students will work with a supervisor and a small group of students on their own research project. Methodology training will also happen in this small-scale intensive setting to allow for a hands-on approach that is tailored to the project.
