In the future, LUT University's graduates will have degrees in technology, business and social sciences.

Social sciences will introduce a new kind of culture and thinking into LUT's education and research. It will also undoubtedly increase students' mutual understanding of the importance of multidisciplinarity.

Our education will emphasise social sciences that lean on internationalisation and behavioural sciences. Our graduates will be able to build a future where they solve grand global challenges and renew society responsibly.

Research and education in the field will be developed together with international partner universities.

In autumn 2023, a total of 40 social sciences students and 20 communication sciences students will start their studies in LUT's Finnish Bachelor's programmes. Master's and doctoral programmes will start in autumn 2024.

All updates and information about the programmes in English will be published on LUT’s website in 2023.
