Frequently Asked Questions
Why study a Master of Social Science Research?
The Master of Social Science Research provides the necessary expertise, both methodological and intellectual, to begin a research career in the social sciences. It also exposes students to the University of Navarra's doctoral program.
What are the Master of Social Science Research's professional prospects?
This master is primarily aimed at students who want to do a doctoral thesis in the social sciences and eventually work as university-level professors or researchers.
How do students choose an advisor for their master's thesis?
Students may request that a certain professor be their advisor, who then must be approved by the MSSR Board.
If a student does not request a specific advisor, the Board will assign one according to their interests and field of study.
Is it possible to combine the master's program with other professional activities?
The Master of Social Science Research requires a dedication of approximately 45 hours a week, making it difficult to combine with another professional activity. However, the time commitment is not uniform throughout, i.e., there are weeks with a higher workload than others and it may, therefore, be compatible with sporadic jobs that are not set on a fixed schedule.
