Get trained in social inequalities and welfare in a welfare state

The Master’s Degree Programme in Inequalities, Interventions and New Welfare State is a cross-disciplinary, international study programme. It is located in the INVEST Research Flagship Centre at the Department of Social Research, Faculty of Social Sciences. It utilises its world-class social and behavioural scientists for educating students, which makes the programme unique both in Finland as well as in Europe at large.

During the studies, you are expected to acquire a profound understanding of the key socio-economic and demographic changes in societies linked with social inequalities and shown in meso-and micro-level interaction. You will also examine the role of welfare state institutions and services in compensating and/or enforcing the inequalities in different country contexts, and you will acquire high-level quantitative methodological skills for analysing data on such issues.
