Politics and Society

The Politics and Society degree program focuses on the central foundations of its two areas, political science and sociological analysis.

The various topics covered in this program include primarily political theories and history of political thought, political systems, international relations, German and European politics as well as general sociology.

Students acquire fundamental academic and profession-related knowledge concerning conditions and causalities in politics and society. The goal is to enable students to understand social and political problem situations, to place and analyze them within larger contexts and, in order to do that, to work through for themselves the basic approaches of social, political and state theory.

For that purpose, they are also introduced to the methodologies of empirical social research (data collection) and social sciences statistics (data evaluation). In practice-related electives, the degree program integrates courses covering professional orientation, practical training and the planning and implementation of research projects.

This subject must be combined with a second subject.

Possible lines of work:

Journalism, public relations, media/communications industry (advertising, PR), media consulting, parliaments, public authorities, public administration, industry and trade associations, political or other foundations, policy consulting (think tanks, foundations, public affairs agencies), diplomatic service, international organizations, opinion polling, adult education, private economy, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions etc.)

University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)

German language proficiency (DSH level 2, CEFR level C1, as per DSH exam. regulations)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
