At a Glance

The Department of Political and Social Sciences consists of the Otto Suhr Institute of Political Science, the Institute of Sociology, the Institute for Media and Communication Studies, and the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology.

The department is one of the most research-intensive political and social scientific institutions in Germany. Examples of this are a collaborative research center and a group of researchers in the fields of international relations and European studies, and participation in research networks including two clusters supported by the German Excellence Initiative, Topoi and Languages of Emotion, and two graduate schools funded through the same initiative, the Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies and the Graduate School of East Asian Studies.
