YOUR SOCIAL SCIENCES STUDIES. YOUR KNOWLEDGE FOR A GOOD SOCIETY.

What is really important to people? How are social milieus changing? How will we live and work in the future? You will be able to answer all this and much more if you study social sciences; a scientific discipline that examines the phenomena of human thinking, feeling and acting, but above all also of social coexistence. Sounds exciting? With a mixture of political science and sociology, your social sciences degree will offer you a broad field for professional development. From research to free enterprise to a political career.

These studies include knowledge and skills in social science theories, socio-political discourses and a broad education in qualitative and quantitative research methods. This also includes empirical research work. At the very beginning, you will learn the basics of social psychology and scientific work. During your Bachelor's degree in Social Sciences, you will encounter current topics from society and social policy. You will deal with social science theories such as social inequality, diversity or sociology. At the same time, you will learn how collaborative work works. You will be able to deepen your knowledge even further during your studies and specialise even more. Education and didactics, social work, social management, psychology, coaching and counselling, pedagogy, diversity, media education, communication and PR - the subject areas are as diverse as your interests and the degree programme in general. Following a "Design Your Degree" model, this Bachelor of Social Sciences offers you every opportunity to put together your modules as flexibly as possible and to set your focus on the topics that you would like to incorporate into your career path later on. 

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
