A research-oriented, post-graduate course of education with a set curriculum enables students to master the modern theories and methods of the social sciences, to critically reflect upon them and apply them as well as to produce scientific knowledge. In addition, key qualifications are also conveyed.The joint object of research of the individual disciplines at the Faculty of Social Sciences is the social action of humans at a historically and socially definable location. Based on current social processes and problems the conditions for individual and collective actions are examined, their cultural, gender and class specific forms described and its effects and consequences on macrosocial as well as microsocial level are examined. The aim is to use this unique combination found only at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Göttingen in order to theoretically and empirically penetrate current fields of science from different perspectives.
