Social Sciences in Frankfurt
Social Sciences in Frankfurt cut across multiple paradigms and contribute to research and teaching in the social sciences by placing emphasis on various theoretical foundations and empirical perspectives. The various disciplines are closely interlinked in the curriculum, and a strong emphasis is put on profiled theory orientation in teaching . This feature reflects the various traditions of social sciences connected with the name of Frankfurt, in particular the Frankfurt School. Although the Frankfurt School remains formative in the image of the courses provided and in the external perception of the Faculty, and is often asked about, the term does not sufficiently reflect the heterogeneity of the research institutions represented in the Faculty today, nor the universally professional self-image of the staff.
In this sense, the Faculty is a unit with its own history and a specific level of organisational differentiation. It is essentially marked by the mutual complementation of sociology, political science and social psychology. This complementary profile is further divided up by the range of methodical and methodological reflections offered across institutional boundaries and by the participation in teacher training, which is offered equally across the institutes.
