Summer School
Social Sciences

Social Sciences Summer School

Are you interested in Politics, Economics, Sociology and Psychology and enjoy taking on new challenges?

If the answer is yes, this interdisciplinary summer school in social sciences is an ideal opportunity to go beyond your school curricula and explore one of the contemporary world’s most pressing issues: human migration

Through a series of lectures, panel discussions, seminars, and workshops we will look at migration using the methodologies and perspectives from different social sciences.

You will learn how to build grassroots campaigns, conduct research, and meet experts in the field who will discuss existing migration theories and policies.

Project-based learning will enable you to engage with this topic in an in-depth, meaningful way that will build a holistic understanding of the issue as well as giving you the opportunity to apply newly gained knowledge and skills.

It is an exciting opportunity to take your understanding of Social Sciences to the next level!
