About this program

Social Informatics (2 Years)

The Master’s program of Social Informatics (MSI) is designed to prepare students for emerging professional careers. It deals with the challenges and opportunities of an increasingly digitalized and data-driven world. With social media and Internet services becoming the key drivers of social development, graduates of social informatics play a significant role in the analysis, design, evaluation, and management of services generated by the ubiquitous presence of information and communication technologies across various social domains.

The MSI program caters for students who would like to contribute to shaping the digital future by having an inter-disciplinary understanding of existing and emerging technologies. Students will gain the ability to design digital devices and online services, and assess their impact on individuals and commercial and public organizations with state-of-the-art statistical and computational methods.

A distinctive feature of the MSI program is the integration of conceptual knowledge with practical experience. In the second study year, students must earn credits by taking part in an internship at a company. In addition, many courses host guest speakers and/or run hands-on projects where students work in collaboration with real-world local clients. Through such practical engagement in entrepreneurial environment, students will gain a solid foundation to further their careers anywhere in the world.

Students of the MSI program can upgrade their studies by participating in international partnering programs (Erasmus or Double-degree program) offered by the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana. The MSI program provides an ideal basis to continue studies at a PhD level.
