INSTITUT FÜR SOZIALWISSENSCHAFTEN

Welcome!

We are pleased that you are interested in finding out more about the BA/MA programme in Social Sciences at the Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf.
 
Our BA programme includes the disciplines Political Science, Sociology and Media Studies. Our MA programme is made up of courses in Sociology and Political Science.
 
This site is designed to provide prospective international students with information about the BA and MA programmes in the social sciences, as well as some general tips and resources that could be useful when planning your studies in Germany.

If you would like to participate in an exchange programme between your university and our institute (such as through ERASMUS/SOCRATES), please contact your local international office.
 
The contact person for internationalisation here at the Social Sciences Institute in Düsseldorf is Dr. Guido Quetsch (quetsch@phil-fak.uni-duesseldorf.de ). We would be happy to establish a cooperation for student and/or faculty exchange with your university.

Deciding to study at a foreign university is a big step and can be intimidating at times. For this reason, we have put together some information to make the transition as smooth as possible. My name is Sarah Erickson, and I am one of several international students in the MA programme in social sciences here at the University of Düsseldorf. I started the MA programme after having finished my BA degree in German and International Relations at the University of Minnesota. 
 
A wide range of general information for international students studying in Düsseldorf can be found on the website of the "Akademisches Auslandsamt"
