Sociology of Education

Welcome to the Sociology of Education Work Group!

The Sociology of Education Work Group integrates three different focal topics with empirical life course research being their common perspective: Educational research, labour market research and the study of social inequality. Our aim is to understand the importance of educational organisations and individual decision-making processes for the structuring of unequal educational and labour market trajectories. For this we offer different courses that deal with the theoretical fundaments, methodological approaches and recent sociological findings from educational and labour market research.

On the following pages you find an overview on our course offer, research activities as well as information about the staff of the work group.
