About Us

The Faculty of Social Science at the Ruhr-University Bochum consistently pursues a modern interdisciplinary approach to social science.

The key feature of the faculty is the combination of the following social science research and teaching fields:

  • Political Science
  • Sociology
  • Social Psychology and Social Anthropology
  • Social Policy and Social Economics
  • Social Science Methodology and Statistics

A defining quality of our faculty is the wide variety of teaching and research fields. However, our faculty clearly distinguishes itself from studies in management and economics, social work, or even psychology. Feel free to visit our internship page to learn more about the practical fields.
