Economic and organizational sociology (B.A.)

WOS: New, innovative and completely different…

Germany’s

  • First Sociology Program at a University of Applied Sciences
  • First Sociology Program that is purely oriented towards practice and career
  • First Sociology Program that can be completed as Dual Program (in cooperation with a company from the first semester on)

 

There is another way to do Sociology! A way that is not dry and boring, but professionally qualifying. The professional orientation is – in contrast to Sociology Programs taught at universities – mainly maintained by the fact that our program puts so-called special sociologies and purely theoretical training in the back, and social competences, that are required in practice, are taught. By doing so, our students will learn how to conduct mediations, plan projects, have critical and conflict discussions, organize international teams and all in all present themselves professionally.

Apart from a thorough methodological training, the main studies focus on potential employers. Here, topics such as quality management, management of social innovations, sustainability and civic involvement are covered in depth and a great value is placed on a public welfare-oriented economy.

While planning our Program, a voluntary semester at one of Hof University’s many partner universities was very deliberately included. During your obligated internship you will be able to establish first contacts to possible employers.

Given that, our program is innovative in two ways. It is the very first Sociology Program at a UAS and the very first purely practice and professionally oriented Sociology Program ever.

 

Start WS 2021/2022
