In cooperation with the Institute of Political Science and the Institute of Sociology, the Institute of Communication and Media Studies offers a BA in Social Sciences. While the goal of the introductory courses is to familiarise students with the basic concepts of the field in general, seminars for advanced students focus on the different aspects of political communication. The general aim of the BA programme is to enhance students’ critical thinking about the social sciences and make them more sensitive towards the communicative aspects of political processes.
