Faculty of Social Science

Knowledge of social science is a necessary prerequisite for being able to cope with and solve some of today's most pressing global issues, such as the environment, health, poverty, growth and democracy. The research and education done at the faculty focuses in various ways on society and social issues.

Our researchers are of high international standing, having reached prominence in a number of fields such as welfare research, applied IT, gender issues, sustainable development and developmental psychology. Our educational programmes and courses have a solid scientific basis. We put a lot of effort into designing our study programmes so they provide a theoretical foundation and also help students to put that knowledge to practical use within the chosen vocational field.
