Cooperations and interdisciplinary collaboration are an important factor for academic work and the quality of research projects.
The Faculty of Social Science comprises various institutes and cooperates closely with numerous university and external institutes and research institutions to develop nationally and internationally visible joint research activities. Students, especially those in the master's and doctoral phases, benefit from the collaborations and exchanges as part of their academic education. The regional network integration of the Ruhr-University as a campus university and of the Faculty of Social Science offers enormous opportunities for cooperation with industry partners, associations and organizations as well as public institutions, which benefit both the students' education and their career opportunities. The Faculty of Social Science has intensive contacts and cooperative relationships that have been developed over decades and are continuously expanded.
