Cultural and Social Studies
The BA "Cultural and Social Studies" (CuSo) is an English- and German-language BA program. The program explicitly invites students with education from non-German speaking countries, who can gradually acquire knowledge of German. At the same time it is very attractive for students who know both German and English and want to study in an international environment. All students have to acquire or prove competence in a third language. Courses are held in English and German.
The goal of the program is to gain an understanding of the contemporary social and cultural world through its historical interconnections as well as its intersectionally organized structures and discourses. You will become acquainted with theoretical and methodological approaches of different disciplines (cultural history, literary studies, linguistics and comparative social sciences).
While offering a profound consolidation in all four academic fields, your studies will specifically deepen your knowledge of the following interdisciplinary and thematic fields:
- EUROPE/S – History, Culture, Politics
- MEDIA − Image, Text and Language
- DIFFERENCE – Migration, Gender and Diversity
The study program will start in the winter semester 2021/22. Please note that this website is under continuous construction.
