The Carlos III-Juan March Institute of Social Sciences (IC3JM) offers a two-year Master in Social Sciences. The goal is to provide the most rigorous formation, both substantive and methodological, to do comparative, historical and quantitative research on core topics in political science, sociology and economic history. Whereas the first year is interdisciplinary and common to all students, in the second year students can choose one of the three fields.
The Master is demanding and requires strong motivation on the part of the students. Instructors are professors of the IC3JM and Carlos III University as well as visiting professors (leading scholars who are invited to teach a course in the Master).
Students will have the opportunity to participate in the intellectual life of the IC3JM, including weekly seminars, international workshops and specialized methodological courses.
The IC3JM has a strong international reputation for being a top research institution in Europe.
