Do you want to contribute to the sustainability of an ageing society and the well-being of an ageing population? Then this is your master’s programme.

Population ageing and rising inequalities are marked trends around the world, while globalisation, digitalisation, urbanisation, migration and changing gender relations are having profound effects on our lives. A longer living population presents global challenges and opportunities that affect every aspect of our lives such as welfare, the environment, health, finance, housing, and employment. Gaining a profound understanding of the potentials and challenges of ageing, is crucial for the well-being of mankind and the sustainability of society. Skilled experts to tackle the global social, economic, health, political and cultural issues of ageing will be needed to support public agencies, civil society and private corporations in addressing the challenges of an ageing population.

The interdependencies between policies, welfare institutions, populations’ dynamics and individual lives are at the heart of this programme. It offers a broad curriculum in policy-oriented ageing research and addresses several policy areas such as the welfare state, life- course policies, pensions, health and care, family, and intergenerational relations. Teachers from a range of academic backgrounds will enable you to acquire a globally attractive and unique education. Together we will seek answers to the complex questions facing society today with regards to both individual and population ageing. As a student on the new Ageing and Social Change master’s programme, you will gain a broad understanding of the relationships between longevity and social change through a truly interdisciplinary perspective, combining up-to-date research and methodology.
