Elective subject in Social Science

In social science, you study politics in a broad sense – the structure of society, the political system and how citizens, organisations and political leaders work together and influence each other. The subsidiary subject in social science gives you extensive background knowledge and an all-round education. It provides you with an insight into society that you can use for the rest of your life.

Seventy places are offered to subsidiary subject students, who attend lessons with Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students in social science. Throughout your studies, teaching is a combination of lectures, seminars, exercises and written assignments. The degree programme is based on a considerable amount of reading material, and you are responsible for getting through it all. Some students set up reading groups, while others study on their own.
