BSc International Sociology

3 years English Starts end of August

The Bachelor's program in International Sociology focuses on the dynamics between man and society. You study social themes such as migration, cultural differences, and poverty and inequality, while connecting these themes to politics and policy. Depending on your ambitions and interests, in your second year you make a choice between two specializations: 'Culture in comparative perspective' or 'Social risks in a changing world'. International Sociology uses a comparative perspective on the Western world.

    "The number of people studying sociology is relatively small, which means that you quickly get to know each other. There’s also a lot of room to ask questions in class."

    "This program is for anyone interested in how society works and how institutions come about. We learn about the different ways in which society(ies) remain connected (cohesion), challenges they face due to differences (inequality), and how we think about society and justify the way we've built it (rationality)."
