The increasing global integration of politics, law, economy and culture is one of the great social challenges of our time. Interdisciplinary knowledge, as offered by the Faculty of Economics, Law and Social Sciences at the University of Erfurt, is therefore becoming increasingly important.
It is the only faculty in Germany to combine the three disciplines:
- social sciences (political science and sociology)
In the major and minor in Social Sciences you will deal with social orders, institutions and organisations. The social sciences focus on the question of how political and social action contexts are created, reproduced and changed.
In researching these connections, they emphasize historical, international and cultural comparison. In addition, the strong profiling of methodological training conveys the importance of social research as a science as well as knowledge of the methods of applied social research.
Our graduates are active in these professional fields:
- in national and international non-governmental organisations,
- with parties and associations,
- with foundations,
- in public administration,
- in political and economic consulting,
- in social science research.
Meet our alumni!
