International Centre for Sustainable Development (IZNE) Growing poverty, unequal education opportunities and social injustice. Germany needs someone to tackle these problems and who does more than just talk about them. Someone who will also be important for future generations. If you want to take a critical look at our social system, analyse problems, develop ideas to solve them and communicate with the right target group via the media, then the bachelor’s degree programme in Sustainable Social Policy (BA) is exactly right for you.
Programme content Our bachelor’s degree programme in Sustainable Social Policy (BA) tackles the entire range of social policy issues in the Federal Republic of Germany. Poverty and wealth, education opportunities, social injustice, social system, pensions, health insurance, participation in decision-making, elections and intergenerational contracts are subjects covered by the curriculum on the basis of the latest scientific findings. Students also study topics from the social sciences, media and communications science, national economics and legal studies. During the seven-semester course of study, they learn how to develop solution recommendations for the challenges faced by society and democracy both internationally and in Germany, on the basis of scientific analysis.
All teaching is conducted in German and English. Application for the winter semester may be submitted between 15 May and 15 July.

With job training, the graduate will be employable in most EU policy related positions requiring no more than graduate skills.
