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.
To gain admission to the Master's programme, you must hold a Bachelor's degree in social or behavioural sciences, completed with a GPA of at least 7.5 (Dutch grading system) or the international equivalent. You can also apply with a degree in other fields such as mathematics, informatics, econometrics, operations research, computational linguistics, digital humanities, geography, or psychology, if you have a clear interest in social issues, , as demonstrated by relevant elective courses, minors, internships or other extra-curricular activities. The Board of Admission assesses whether you have sufficient knowledge and skills in research methods. With research methods courses of at least 12 EC in total you qualify for this criterion.
