Master of Arts “Sociology – European Societies” • Department of


The research-based Masters program “Sociology – European Societies” is designed and supported by the Institute of Sociology of the FU Berlin in cooperation with other Berlin science and research centers. The Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB) and the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) actively contribute to the program's teaching contents.

The course concentrates on the description and analysis of social aspects of Europeanisation: to what extent are European nation states already integrated into a European community?; under which conditions is further integration possible?; and in which ways have societies changed on a national level as a result of economic and political Europeanisation? Furthermore, the course considers Europe and Europeanisation within a global context.

Completion of the Masters program qualifies and equips graduates for work within academic and political fields; for example, for positions in social science and research centers, international and particularly European organisations, NGOs and governmental institutions. Additionally, the program enables graduates to teach at universities and other higher education institutions.

The program is a full-time study course, during which students obtain a “Master of Arts” degree. The program is modulized, commences every autumn and is structured to be completed within four semesters (2 years). In the first two semesters one lecture and one seminar out of three modules must be attended. The third semester is assigned to a research placement and students finish their degree with a thesis in the last semester.
