Department of Social Sciences
Welcome to the Department of Social Sciences
More and more students are going abroad. Rightly so!
Studying abroad opens new horizons and changes the way you see the world. Exploring a new country and culture opens your perspectives and deepens your insight on your own and another culture.
You improve your language and social skills and gain in-depth understanding into different ways of life. You make new friends for life and can increase your confidence in yourself and others.
Furthermore, stays abroad are becoming vital recruitment criteria for employers. Needless to say. It is a “win-win” –situation for all.
Our faculty covers a broad spectrum in the fields of society, economics, law, politics, technology, science and culture. In addition to the courses of study, we would like to mention the cross-curricular accompanying course in Social and Cultural Sciences (SuK), which has been an integral part of student education at the h_da since 1972. The language centre of the h_da is also located under our "roof". It is open to all students and supports the acquisition of language and intercultural skills. Our department has a total of more than 800 students, studying in the following courses:
