Study Details

MA: 2 years

Marrying two disciplines, we embrace a diversity of perspectives and foster a critical understanding of the social world in the face of change and crisis. Bringing together students and professors from across the world, we offer a global curriculum, paired with rigorous training in diverse social science methodologies, including ethnography, interviews, discourse analysis, survey research, network analysis, quantitative and historical methods. Students gain hands-on experience in and outside of the classroom, from an extensive research period with opportunities to go into the field through the annual graduate conference to multimedia projects.

With a strong, extensive research component, this program is recommended as a stepping stone for PhD studies for candidates interested in global and urban issues, particularly on how political, economic and social structures interact on the urban, local and global scale.
