Digital technology has revolutionized society and the way we study it. Much of human interaction is recorded in the form of a digital footprint, and analyzing it allows us to gain an unprecedented understanding of society and how it works.
In this new context, the figure of the computational social scientist emerges. This new profile combines the characteristics of the social scientist with new computational approaches based on predictive modeling, text analysis and network science.
The Master in Computational Social Science offers specialized training in cutting-edge computational and quantitative analysis techniques oriented to the study of the Social Sciences. This program prepares students to take advantage of complex data and advanced computational tools to understand society and human behavior.
The Master is preferably geared towards students with a background in Social Sciences, Economics, Communication and Law, and prepares them to work in the professional and academic fields, and to lead and supervise interdisciplinary teams in the field of Computational Social Sciences.
The sessions of the Master will be held at the Madrid-Puerta de Toledo Campus.
