Cultural and Social Studies


The BA "Cultural and Social Studies" (CuSo) is a study program in English and progressively in German, so it provides for the gradual acquisition of knowledge of German or knowledge of another foreign language (in addition to the dominant language of instruction, English).

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.
