Studying in Mannheim

The Master Sociology at the University of Mannheim is a completely English course of study and therefore attracts many students from all over the world to Mannheim. In addition to the international atmosphere, the Master’s degree is also characterized by the following aspects: The University of Mannheim is a smaller university with few courses of study and small classes in sociology, which enables good supervision and a pleasant learning environment in small courses.  The Master’s programme also focuses on statistical training – from a thematic point of view, the programme is characterised by a wide range of specialisation options. The Mannheim-based social research institutes provide a close link between research and teaching. On the one hand, we benefit from practical studies, on the other hand, there are many opportunities for students to apply their knowledge as an assistant or trainee. If you are planning a semester abroad, you will get your money’s worth in Mannheim and have to decide between partner universities all over the world. This is precisely why the social sciences at the University of Mannheim lead the prestigious CHE rankings. Apart from the professional advantages, we also benefit from good supervision by the dean’s office. There you will find contact persons for your study programme, stay abroad and internship opportunities to help you with words and deeds. The aims of the Master’s programme are the early independent development of empirical research and its publication. The Master Sociology prepares its students primarily for research or doctoral studies.

Besides studying, there is no shortage of studio life in Mannheim. From a wide range of sports, culture and music to the fat university parties that take place on Thursday open-air in the Schneckenhof. Would you like to volunteer in addition to your studies? Then the University of Mannheim is the right place for you: You can choose between more than 50 initiatives, the political university groups and of course the student council and find just the right thing for you.

All important information about the Master Sociology can be found on the website of the faculty.
