This Master is optimally structured with an excellent relation between the contents of the courses. It provides a broad range of choices and it’s easy to find the areas of knowledge of our interest. It includes courses of Methodology and Theory allowing us to attain the main objective of a Master course – learning how to do Science.

Through the apprenticeship of theories and sociological methods, and above all through the close contact that is established between students and professors (that follow and support students along the whole process), the Master in Sociology of Iscte crucially develops our conscience of the classical and contemporary debates that acquire today, more than ever, a primordial relevance.

I found this Master informative, engaging, and thought-provoking. The teachers (local and international) have all been so fantastic. The diversity in teaching styles and content/context has been super rich. I've also enjoyed connecting with global colleagues and expanding my knowledge on other cultures/geographic learnings.
