Sociology explores social structures and processes by using various theories and methods. Students not only examine human action, social behavior and social change by asking themselves how a society is structured and organized, but also how individual actors, organizations and institutions interact, as well as what kinds of norms, values and structures play influential roles.
Social Economics is an interdisciplinary degree program combining social work and social education, sociology, and selected areas of business administration and economics.
The social work program trains students to pursue social work and social education. Graduates of the social work program use acquired insight in education, sociology and psychology to provide support services to people in difficult situations while also helping shape their lives and actively take part in social processes.
