    Welcome to the Faculty of Applied Social Sciences

    Our faculty was founded on 1 October 1991 as one of the first departments at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt.

    Originally starting out with a diploma program, we have since expanded our portfolio to offer five different degree courses in two separate fields of study.

    On this website, you will find information about all of the teaching and research areas in our faculty, our degree courses and the latest news.

    We think holistically

    “People are the real wealth of a nation. Participation, health and education are prerequisites for human development." (United Nations)

    The Faculty of Applied Social Sciences is committed to a pluralistic understanding of scholarship in modern societies.

    Both our teaching and research aim to reflect the changes in society. The main focus is on social services as well as the upbringing and education of children, as regulated primarily by social legislation.

    With equal opportunities, participation and sustainability in mind, we strive to cultivate social and human skills in society.

    Our students acquire academically proven skills that enable them to reflect and act professionally when dealing with individual and societal development and educational processes.
