In this program students learn how contemporary societies have developed and how they function, with a focus on the key challenges these societies are confronted with (e.g. economic globalization, the growth of megacities, ethno-cultural diversity, and the rise of the critical citizen). None of these issues can be fully grasped, let alone addressed, through the prism of a single social science. A comprehensive understanding will only come from integrating insights from all the social sciences, together with relevant facts identified by the natural sciences. The aim of this program, which combines the four disciplines of political science, mass communication, sociology, and economics, is to train students in gaining such an all-round perspective on human behavior and social organization.
