Contacts at the Department

Our faculty has six different departments: The Department of Pedagogy (Institut für Erziehungs-wissenschaft), the Department of Communication (Institut für Publizistik), the Department of Political Science (Institut für Politikwissenschaft), the Department of Psychology (Psychologisches Institut), the Department of Sociology (Institut für Soziologie), and the Department of Sports Science (Institut für Sportwissenschaft).

You can find the departments' locations and other locations of important services here. Please note: The Department of Psychology is not located on campus. You can find directions here.

All of the departments offer different undergraduate (B.A./B.Sc. level) and postgraduate (M.A./M.Sc. level) study programmes.The classes are usually held in German. However, we provide information about courses in English language under the section "Courses taught in English".

Regarding course enrollment, learning agreement and Transcript of Records, you can always ask the counsellors of SoWi?So!. Depending on which subject you are enrolled in, please also get in touch with the respective contacts at the departments (see below) to get more information about the specific study programmes.

Your fellow students of the "Fachschaft" are the student representatives of the respective departments. They are able to help you with all sorts of questions you might have. In addition, you will find them almost any time in their offices. Getting in touch with them is a good way to meet German students. See their location and special offers here.
