A VU social scientist adds something
Social scientists. They can be found everywhere on the job market, and they are needed! A lot of companies – private as well as non-profit – use sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, public administration scientists or communication scientists to increase the effectiveness of their services.
Does your company want to offer a new product or an innovative service? Then a communication scientist can dig into the development of a corporate marketing strategy. Our graduated sociology students are trained in combining quantitative research methods like surveys or big data analyses with broadening methods like interviews. This makes them skilled consultants and trainers. Anthropologists can help analyze behavioural and movement patterns. This is necessary to create a safe passenger flow in public spaces, or to effectively guide customers through a large department store. Our public administration and organizational sciences students know how to combine public administration- and organizational processes: how can the organization be set up so that an administrative decision has the desired effect and does not pass its goal? And no, our political scientists are not just valued employees in municipal councils or campaign teams of political parties. They prove to be valued project employees, help companies and institutions to enhance their data strategy, or they have proven their services in system surveillance.
Everywhere where people live together, collaborate, and communicate, a VU social scientist has something to add.
