BSc International Sociology
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.

"About a year ago, I didn’t even know about Tilburg University but now I feel like I couldn’t be in a better place. Tilburg is the next best thing to being home!"
Thomas van GasterenBachelor's student
"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."
Manaar MohammedBachelor's student
"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)."
Unfortunately, we cannot organize any on-campus events at the moment. To help you as much as possible with your study choice, we offer online alternatives.
