Specialties of the master program: dual language

The Master’s program can be studied either completely in English or in both English and German. This combination is rather extraordinary: So far this is the only Master’s program in sociology in Germany that can be studied completely in English.

All lectures are held in English, and each module offers seminars in both English and German. Exams and papers may be written in either language, as most instructors are fluent in both English and German.
Please note that, as around half of the seminars are offered in English, and the other half in German, you can only choose from a limited course offer if you would like to study in English exclusively.

This offers a great opportunity for both German and international students:

German students are provided with the opportunity to improve and practice their academic English, which will give them excellent chances on the international labor market.

International students are not restrained to the German language, which may be an obstacle for some, and can study at one of the best German universities nonetheless.
