Graduate Program in Sociology - Exploring society
Description of the program
The graduate program in Sociology leads to the conferment of a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree, a second higher education degree qualifying to practice a profession or to conduct research. The primary goal of the program is to prepare students for the various job possibilities in executive and scientific positions as sociologists.
The program follows a scientific as well as practice-oriented approach. Thus, a consolidation of students’ knowledge in sociological fundamentals in the areas Sociological Theory, Analysis of Social Structures, and Methodologies is indispensable. With this broad knowledge base, graduate students will have a seamless transition from their graduate studies to a PhD program or PhD project. Like the undergraduate program, the graduate program is also oriented towards specific fields of activity and students may create individualized profiles through specialization within their course of study. The employability of graduates is, therefore, strengthened despite the comprehensive flexibility of students with the design of their study plan.
The major fields of study are closely related to the research focus of Sociology at Bamberg. This ensures the content of study to be relevant, up to date, and future-oriented.
