Welcome to the Department of Sociology


Founded about 50 years ago by the renown sociologist Ralf Dahrendorf, the Department of Sociology has meanwhile turned into a modern center of sociological teaching and research. Three chairs and three assistant and associate professors are dedicated to empirical research on current issues of modern societies in the areas of employment, education, gender, migration, knowledge and technology.


There are course programs available for Bachelor and Master degrees in sociology. A core feature of these courses is teaching a broad variety of both qualitative and quantitative methods of empirical social research. Equipped with these indispensable qualifications, our alumni find their ways into challenging careers in business, administration and research.


Apart from the library, the departments CATI-Lab, computer pool and video lab allow both for an up-to-date training in social science methods and for advanced empirical research programs. An extended student tutoring program, small courses and high standards in presentation technologies support students in their endeavor of "making the grade" just-in-time. Being situated right beside the university library and the cafeteria the department of sociology offers student life with "campus feeling".
