Waarom in Groningen?

The program combines the strengths of two of the highest-ranked Social Science Departments in Europe to offer high level research training in Sociology and Demography. It emphasizes the study of both advanced and developing societies from a dynamic perspective, using analytical and methodological tools from two disciplines. The program has a unique approach for understanding how individuals' main life events both influence and are influenced by the social context in which they live.

  • Testimonial van Antje Bieberstein

    Studying in both countries provides different experiences on all levels: cultures, societies and educational systems vary greatly!

    After my bachelor studies in East Asian Studies and Psychology at the University of Groningen, I was looking for an interdisciplinary programme that would support me in broadening my horizon and developing research skills.

    Since quantitative skills were only a small fraction of my earlier studies, the double degree programme in Social Demography allowed me to gain substantive theoretical knowledge and practical expertise. I also appreciated the range in subjects that became available through the programme. When I saw the programme I just knew: this is it!

    I believe that the combination of the programmes in two countries is one of the most valuable elements. Through this, the exposure to international lecturers as well as different types of students from all backgrounds is immense. The exchange generates great ideas and forces oneself to think outside the box. What makes this a great programme is that studying in both countries provides different experiences on all levels: cultures, societies and educational systems vary greatly.

    If it feels right but you are still hesitant: just go ahead and apply! You won't regret it.
