A most powerful troika: Sociology, Political Science, Communication Studies

Three crucial disciplines to build a deep understanding of today’s societies. By tearing down the walls around three social sciences, the English-taught Bachelor of Science in the Social Sciences (BScSS) program enables you to build solid bridges between them. And this is exactly the kind of fundamental skill you can take with you wherever you go - for example towards a specializing Master program and, later, a thriving European career.

The analytical approach of the program implies that core courses take turns with so-called ‘interdisciplinary’ ones. The advantage of this clever mix? It teaches you to shift between and combine insights of sociology, political science and communication studies. In other words: you learn how to analyze complex social issues from multiple angles.

Enriching concepts of different social sciences by confronting them with each other gives you another important edge. It turns theoretical knowledge into a tangible asset for investigating social reality. This is obviously a major pro for your future employer(s), especially since the BScSS program also equips you with an extensive methodological toolkit. This is valuable knowhow you will carry along your entire career - it doesn’t age and it will especially serve you well in the data-driven future.
