Study Social Sciences at the JKU.

The JKU is the only university in Austria that offers the entire spectrum of studies in social sciences!

That is quite a few, and that is why we have a lot of space here: Space to address scientific questions and issues, space for procedures and technologies, for methods and measurements, calculations and interpretations, space to observe, conduct surveys and documentation, space for differences and common ground, space for politics, for analysis and for science, for culture, communication, media, journalism and advertising. In short: Space for each other, to each other, and with each other.
