The area of political science, especially methods, headed by Prof. Dr. Kai-Uwe Schnapp, is especially responsible for teaching the method modules I and II in the BA course. There, students of sociology and political science are introduced to empirical research. In cooperation with the Project Office for Applied Social Research of the Department of Social Sciences, we enable students to participate in scientific projects that we develop and carry out with external cooperation partners.
In addition to the focus on empirical social research in research and teaching, the team is broadly based in terms of content: We research elites in politics and society, parliaments, ministerial bureaucracies, democratic regimes, electoral systems and much more.
