About Societal Resilience at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Use big data to tackle society's biggest challenges

How do communities bounce back after tragic events like the COVID-19 pandemic? What role do social media play in political polarisation? How can analysing data help us find solutions? And what are the ethical concerns in mining data?

These are big questions that require big answers. The two-year Societal Resilience Research Master's programme identifies, investigates and develops solutions for broad social challenges, using qualitative and quantitative methods to analyse data, both big and small.
