In the study of Law you will acquire and deepen your knowledge of German and European law with its international implications and learn to apply this knowledge in areas relevant to political science. To this end, it conveys solid legal knowledge and the political, social and economic foundations of law as well as the ability to reflect on them theoretically. After completing your studies, you will be able to analyse issues and cases through a legal perspective, shape future legal relationships and contribute advancing the development of law.
In the study of Social Sciences with its sub-fields of political science and sociology, you will deepen your knowledge of social orders, institutions and organisations. The Social Sciences explain how political and social arrangements are created, reproduced and transformed, and, in particular, how collectively binding decisions are made. In exploring these contexts, they emphasise historical, international and cultural comparison. The emphasis of qualitative and quantitative method training also highlights the role of the social sciences as empirical sciences.
All degree programmes are modular. Modules are made up of sub-modules. Within these, courses are offered, such as lectures or seminars. During the course of study, each module is completed with a module examination.
The first year in the Bachelor's degree programme is called the orientation phase (O-Phase). In this year, you familiarise yourself with the university and examination system, get to know the field of study and also prove yourself in it. In the subsequent qualification phase (Q-phase), you will deepen the previous study contents and set your academic focus.
