Special features regarding teachingIn-depth introduction including preparation course, introduction to methodology, introductory lectures in sub-fields (BA) and lecture series (MA). There are also numerous specialization options, including in sociology, and international guest lectures in all sub-disciplines. Research practicals and simulation games allow students to link theory with (research) practice. The aim of the teaching is the communication of content-based and methodological skills as well as the ability to work independently in accordance with scientific principles and to reflect critically on social contexts.
