Social Sciences

... looks into questions such as ...

  • What keeps modern society together?
  • What is globalisation?
  • How do cultures differ?
  • How is socio-scientific knowledge formed and assessed?
  • Which specific perspectives and explanations do economy, sociology, political science, social psychology and social anthropology provide?
  • The multidisciplinarity of sociology, economics, psychology and politics is what I enjoy most. Moreover, you have the chance to conduct your own research over the period of two semesters – that’s just fabulous!

  • As far as the range of subject goes, you’re very flexible and can opt for a political, economic or sociological field of study. In my opinion, everyone, from the theorist to the practitioner, is bound to be happy here.
