LUT’s social scientists will solve challenges of the digitalised future at the interface between people and technology. Social sciences studies provide you with diverse skills and knowledge about human behaviour in digital environments with intelligent technologies.
Robotisation, new AI applications, social media platforms, and real-time big data on human behaviour online and offline bring new challenges to people’s everyday life and well-being. How we adapt new-generation digital technologies will influence our behaviour and society. The world of work and companies need experts who can anticipate the social and societal impacts of technologies.
You will be able to work in numerous professional fields with job titles such as data analyst, data scientist, user experience researcher, consultant, director of human resources, and head of community relations.
Social scientists from LUT can examine trends and consider the societal, political, economic, human, and well-being factors of technologies. This master’s programme is an excellent match for you if you want to apply social science to build a sustainably digitalised future and influence sustainable and responsible technological transformations.
The programme also invites you to engage with entrepreneurs and associations, enabling you to build networks and learn from real-life cases.
The delivery of courses is blended, and the programme is a combination of on-campus and online studies.
This master's programme will start in autumn 2024. More information about the programme will be posted on this page during spring 2023.
