Bachelor's degree programme Sustainable Social Policy (BA)

The career field in social policy is wide-ranging and offers many opportunities.

If you want to start your career straight after completing your Bachelor's degree, you will find opportunities as an employee in academic or political ‘control centres’ in social policy. Potential employers include ministries, social insurance institutions, political parties, trade unions, associations, foundations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), media companies, consulting, educational and research institutions.

For those who wish to deepen and expand their specialist knowledge, the department offers an international Master's degree in ‘Analysis and Design of Social Protection Systems (MA)'.

The programme gives me the chance to pursue my interdisciplinary interest in politics. I’m specializing in methods and am getting great support. I feel well-prepared for my internship in the statistics department of the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs.“ Vivian Edler (Alumna, class of 2017)

I'm glad I chose the Sustainable Social Policy programme. The curriculum is very interesting. We learn how the different disciplines interact, which gives us a good overview of current issues in politics in general and social policy in particular. I would like to be a political consultant, and the integrated internship gives me the chance to try out if that’s really the field I want to work in. Bastian Prinz (Alumnus, class of 2018)
