Do you want to contribute to the knowledge regarding youth issues, improve the quality of youth welfare and develop ways to prevent or solve problems associated with adolescence and young adulthood? The Master’s programme Youth Studies will enable you to look beyond the limits of individual fields of study. You will learn to observe and examine specific issues by combining different social scientific disciplines (psychology, pedagogy, sociology, anthropology) in an interdisciplinary approach.

By integrating knowledge from different disciplines you will be able to advance fundamental understanding of youth issues and to address youth problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research. Additionally, you will gain knowledge about policies and interventions regarding youth issues and develop academic skills to conduct research in the field of youth.

This one-year Master's programme relates to topics and challenges relevant and, often, unique to youth such as:

  • substance use, addiction, and risky behaviour
  • psychosocial problems
  • social inequalities and wellbeing
  • radicalization, discrimination, intolerance
  • accessibility of health care
  • social media and the digital environment of youngsters
  • antisocial and prosocial behaviour
  • youth culture, pop music and cultural lifestyle
  • friendship, social networks and the social environment of adolescents
  • sexual development and behaviour
  • changes in youth welfare and youth policy

The programme's objective

This Master’s programme will prepare you for a career in the field of youth research, youth welfare and youth policy. By acquiring in-depth knowledge on youth issues, academic skills and competencies you will develop into a highly-qualified science practitioner. You will receive a structured and systematic training in theoretically and methodologically advanced research that will equip you to help solve social problems in the field of youth either within or outside of academia.

Possible career paths
