Social Sciences B.A.

The course of study in Social Sciences at RWTH Aachen is characterized by its interdisciplinary approach. It combines multiple social science subjects from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities with each other and creates points of contact to numerous other faculties at RWTH Aachen, for example business administration, economics, economic and social history, medicine, or geography.

Furthermore the gap to the engineering sciences - with their RWTH Aachen specific interdisciplinary orientation towards social future problems and their mastery - is also bridged. Students do not end their studies as sociologists, historians, theologians, or political scientists, but as interdisciplinarily shaped social scientists.

A specialization in one of the named subject areas is possible in a limited manner started in the second year of studies. However it can be first intensified through the framework of a Master's program.
