Bachelor's program in Sociology (in accreditation)

The new bachelor's program in Sociology is currently in the accreditation process. The start is planned for the winter semester 2021/2022. Enrollmant is always possible for the winter semester.

We offer a sociological qualification with a focus on six central fields of social change. Sociological thinking and theoretical approaches are taught specifically in connection with these fields (students choose two of them):

  • Social inequalities and cultural differences
  • Life Course and biography
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Work, organization and technology
  • Knowledge and education
  • Environment and innovation

Methodological competences

Competences in both qualitative-interpretative and quantitative research methods are taught; research workshops enable research-based learning with concrete practical examples.

Practical orientation

Courses on professional fields and key qualifications, writing workshops, language courses and the option of tutoring provide additional qualifications for professional practice.


English-language courses are offered throughout the course of study. The 5th semester is designed as a semester abroad.
