O que eu aprenderei?

Master’s Degree Programme in Global and Transnational Sociology (GTS) is a high-quality, internationally linked programme especially suited for students aiming at careers in social research, policy analysis and consultation, cultural analysis, media, international organizations, and international development.

GTS programme provides students with the basis for making sense of globalization and transnational connections in the contemporary world. National policies and cultures are increasingly and obviously related to events and forces outside national borders. Policies, cultural trends and organizations are now intimately and broadly inter-connected across the world. A critical understanding of these patterns and connections is the primary goal of the programme.

Covering a range of theoretical training, and focusing on sociological neo-institutionalism, the GTS programme will provide the students with a toolkit to analyze social, political and cultural forces shaping our global world. Students will learn perspectives on understanding the contemporary world, will appreciate how national policies are made, will unpack the transnational connectivity in contemporary media, and will see into the transnational relations of civil society, culture and modern religion. The degree will also offer students a cosmopolitan perspective and multi-cultural appreciation crucial for a wide span of careers today.
