The Bachelor’s degree programme in Sociology provides students with a sound theoretical and empirical grounding in Sociology. Students will gain knowledge of the theoretical and methodological foundations of the subject, with due reference being made to the requirements of the job market and the changes taking place within it. Students will learn to work to academic standards and to critically analyse social conditions and the measures taken by governmental and non-governmental institutions to improve them.
The degree programme focusses on the study of the structural conditions of institutional configurations such as “state”, “market” and “civil society”, along with the repercussions that these have on individuals’ behaviour. The Bachelor’s degree programme enables students to gain a first degree that qualifies them to enter a profession. They are able to independently solve problems in their chosen career and simultaneously assume responsibility in the respective institutional configurations ‘state’, ‘market’ and ‘civil society’.
The Bachelor’s degree programme is modular and comprises subject-specific modules and modules in cross-disciplinary skills. The modules consist of mandatory courses in sociology, in the cross-disciplinary elective module as well as courses in the compulsory elective area.
