Social Sciences and Sociological Academic Programs.

The JKU offers a broad spectrum of studies in Social Sciences!

The world is constantly changing in terms of social aspects, technology, and business - and at a rate faster than we've ever seen before. As we continue to grow, technology is also making our world smaller. Throw in the way the government and society shape our lives and one question emerges above all others: How does all of this affect our co-existence? The JKU can deliver the answers.
