Tampere university community is made up of the research-intensive Tampere University and development-focused Tampere University of Applied Sciences. These universities form a community of 35,000 students and academic experts. Our areas of priority in research and education are technology, health and society.
At the Faculty of Social Sciences, we research society, social change and people’s welfare, health and functional ability. The Faculty educates independent professionals for a changing, ever more complex world and engages in critical debate on the status of society and the direction in which it is developing.
