Methods of Empirical Social Research

Research and Teaching

The research profile of the field of study “Methods of empirical social research” covers the sociology of work and education in Germany and the post-Soviet states as well as the determinants of fertility, factorial survey studies, and particular methodological questions.

In the area of university teaching, this field is responsible for students’ training in the qualitative and the quantitative methods of empirical social research and in descriptive and inductive statistics. Additionally, a particular value is placed on the early practical application of knowledge in student project work, also with the help of special software (SPSS, MAXQDA).
