The MSc Comparative Social Change is a oneyear full time programme which is jointly delivered by Trinity’s Department of Sociology and the School of Sociology at UCD. It provides students with the theoretical frameworks and practical research skills necessary to understand the processes and pressing issues presented by global social change.

The programme provides advanced training in conceptualising, designing and conducting comparative research, across countries, and examines the role that this can play in policy development.
