An international comparison, especially of European societies and the analysis of transnationalization and Europeanization processes are the core research areas of the Institute of Sociology.

We offer the master’s program "Sociology – European Societies" which can be studied in English and the bachelor's program "Globale Soziologie" which can be studied in German as a minor subject in a combi bachelor. Both research-oriented degree programs focus on quantitative methods of empirical social research and benefit from the cooperation with the Central Institutes for East European Studies, Latin American Studies, and the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies as well as the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB) and the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP).

Members of the Institute are involved in the Cluster of Excellence “Contestations of the Liberal Script. Global Challenges for the Model of Liberal Democracy and Market Economy”, the “Center for Civil Society Research”, the German Research Foundation (DFG) Research Unit studying European socialization processes, the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) “Affective Societies – Dynamics of Sociality in a World in Motion”, and the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) as well as at several graduate schools.
