Curriculum

The Bachelor is structured in basic and advanced modules. Students receive  a total of 180 ECTS credits. The basic modules are "Sociology I", "Sociology II" "Methods and Statistics", and "Social Psychology". Students can major in three of four advanced modules (General and Specific Sociology, Comparative European Societies, Social Psychology and Methods of Empirical Social Research). Each module includes one lecture, one seminar and one exercise course.

In addition to coursework in sociology, students choose a minor subject and take  "social skills" classes. These additional courses cover presentation techniques, software and computer training and media skills. An internship is an obligatory element of the Bachelor. Our internship office supports students in the process of finding an internship.

Students complete the Bachelor program with a Bachelor's thesis.
