    The Carlos III-Juan March Institute of Social Sciences (IC3JM) offers a two-year, official Master of Social Sciences, run entirely in English. It corresponds to 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). It is a Master of excellence, interdisciplinary, with a strong emphasis on methodology, and academically demanding.

    The goal of the Master is to train students to do solid and rigorous research in the core topics of the Social Sciences from comparative, historical and quantitative perspectives. The Master offers courses on sociological analysis, social stratification, comparative politics, international relations, economic history, political economy, game theory, statistics and research design.

    The faculty consists of members of the IC3JM, the Department of Social Sciences, and the Departments of Economics and Statistics of the Carlos III University as well as visiting professors (leading scholars who are invited to teach a course in the Master).
