  • seminars.

In addition, we also offer courses in compulsory elective modules for Bachelor and Master studies. In this context, the focus is likewise on the discussion of quantitative research results. Taking part in our courses generally requires openness to quantitative methods. Exemplary subject areas include:

    • Discrimination, e.g. on the housing market;
    • Educational sociology;
    • Economic sociology;
    • Social inequality in its most different forms and with regard to its temporal development.
