I. General Studies - Fachergänzende Studien des FB 8 (Sozialwissenschaften)

Die fachergänzenden Studien (General Studies) sind Bestandteil des wissenschaftlichen Studiums, die ca. 25 % des Bachelorstudiums umfassen. Dieser Bereich bietet Ihnen die Möglichkeit, über das Fachstudium hinaus, Veranstaltungen zu besuchen, die Ihren Interessen entsprechen. Zudem können Sie ein berufliches Profil bilden, indem Sie Fach- und Methodenkenntnisse anderer Fachrichtungen erwerben. Ihre persönliche Expertise kann Ihnen den Zugang zu einem Masterstudium oder den Berufseinstieg erleichtern. Außerdem können Sie die fachergänzenden Studien nutzen, um Ihre Fremdspachenkenntnisse auszubauen und zu vertiefen.

Die fachergänzenden Studien der zentralen Einrichtungen der Universität Bremen (Studierwerkstatt, International Office, Fremdsprachenzentrum, BRIDGE Existensgründungsinitiative der Hochschulen, eGeneral Studies, Career Center) sind im Veranstaltungsverzeichnis an oberster Stelle aufgeführt.

Einen Überblick der fachergänzenden Studien des FB 08 (Sozialwissenschaften) erhalten Sie auf dieser Seite. Zum Teil ergänzt durch Studienangebote der zentralen Einrichtungen.

Die Bachelorstudiengänge des FB 08 (Sozialwissenschaften) legen in ihren Prüfungsordnungen fest, in welchem Umfang fachergänzende Studien (General Studies) im Wahl- und Wahlpflichtbereich anerkannt werden. Bitte lesen Sie Ihre Prüfungsordnung genau. Und beachten Sie den Studienplan Ihres Studiengangs.

Doch wie entscheiden Sie, welche fachergänzenden Studien für Sie richtig und sinnvoll sind? Woran orientieren Sie sich dabei?

Bevor Sie darüber nachdenken, sollten Sie sich folgende Fragen beantworten: Welche Ziele will ich im Studium und darüber hinaus erreichen? Wie kann ich die Anforderungen im Fachstudium erfolgreich bewaeltigen? Was will ich nach dem Studium beruflich machen? Wo möchte ich mich beruflich engagieren? Wie kann ich erkennen, was meine Stärken sind? Wie finde ich heraus, ob ich für meinen Traumberuf ausreichend qualifiziert bin? Was muss ich wissen, um ein anspruchsvolles Praktikum zu finden? Wie kann ich herausfinden, was in einem Praktikum von mir erwartet wird?

Wenn Sie sich ernsthaft mit diesen Fragen beschäftigen, werden Sie merken, dass Sie einen Lernprozess beginnen, den Sie selbst aktiv steuern. Sie übernehmen die Verantwortung für Ihre berufliche Zukunft. Sie sortieren das Studienangebot der Universität Bremen bzw. des FB 08 nach ihren eigenen Kriterien – zumindest für den Bereich fachergänzende Studien (General Studies).

Das Zentrum Studium und Praxis des FB 08 unterstützt Sie gerne bei der Beantwortung Ihrer Fragen. Nehmen Sie dafür bitte die Sprechzeiten wahr.

Darüber hinaus können Sie in der Stud.IP Dauerveranstaltung "PraxisForum FB 8" aktuelle Praktikumsangebote, Ausschreibungen für Hilfskraftstellen und Stellenangebote für Absolvent(en)innen herunterladen. Die Absolventenstellen sollen aufzeigen, wo Sozialwissenschaftler/innen gesucht werden. Sie dienen als Orientierung für die Klärung Ihrer beruflichen Vorstellungen.

Sie sind herzlich eingeladen, sich in die Dauerveranstaltung als Autoren einzutragen.

08-zsp-GS-1018Introduction to feminist methods and methodology (in englischer Sprache)
Einführung in die feministische Erkenntnistheorie und Methoden

Seminar
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Mo 14:00 - 16:00 GW2 B1216 (2 SWS)

A recurring question from my students concerns the distinctiveness of feminist approaches to methods, methodologies, and epistemologies. This key question is posed in different ways: Is there a specifically feminist method? Are there feminist methodologies and epistemologies, or simply feminist approaches to these? Answers to these questions are far from straightforward given the continually evolving nature of feminist reflections on the methodological and epistemological dimensions and dilemmas of research. This course attempts to address these questions by tracing recent developments in this area.
The seminar demonstrates the many ways in which feminist researchers continue to challenge, develop, reflect and strive for robust practices and warrantable knowledges. This is configured through; inter alia, notions of voice, positionality, representation, intersectional understandings, strong objectivity and feminist empiricism. A large part of the course will be devoted to methods and their application in praxis. Students should have basic knowledge of research methods (at least done the course introduction to research methods). The course language is English, however, depending upon composition and request of students.

This course introduces students to how experiments are used to address questions about social phenomena. Social science research and policy analysis have in recent years put greater emphasis on the causes underpinning phenomena of interest. This is an important advance as the lack of doing so can lead to erroneous substantive conclusions and policy recommendations. Experiments are well-suited for the identification of causal effects, as they give researchers control over the research setting and thus allow them to exclude alternative explanations. The course focuses on introducing students to basic concepts and analytical tools employed in experimental research. Students are also acquainted with different experimental research designs, including lab, survey, and field experiments. At the end of the course, students will possess a good understanding of the strengths (and weaknesses) of the experimental methods most commonly used in social science research. A capacity to employ these methods independently is fostered through various exercises, including the writing of a research plan. Prior knowledge of basic statistical concepts, such as hypothesis testing and regression analysis, is strongly recommended.

Objectives: Multivariate Research Methods course provides an introduction to the logic of statistical control and multivariate statistical models, as they are commonly applied in the social science disciplines. The course emphasizes the understanding of statistical concepts and usage of statistics rather than mathematical formulas. The goals are: to enhance the students’ awareness of various methods in design and analysis of various social science problems; to introduce students to different methods and techniques for analyzing quantitative data; to develop the skills necessary to critically evaluate published work in social sciences; to develop students’ skills in modelling and carrying out their own research; to learn how to interpret results of statistical analyses; to guide and prepare students for more advanced courses in statistical methods.

Organization of the Course: Multivariate Research Methods I (MRM I, 8-10) will provide an overview and introduction into various statistical methods. MRM II (10-12) will provide an opportunity to deepen the knowledge of methods through reading and discussing professional literature where the methods are applied. It is recommended to take both courses but it is also possible to register for MRM I only.

Participants: This course is designed for advanced BA-students who have command of the basic social science methodology and statistics, such as descriptive and inferential statistics, as well as an introductory methods course at the Master's level. Interested participants from various social science programs and disciplines are welcome.

Language of instruction is English. Discussion, assignments, and exam: English or German.

Grading: Students are expected to attend and actively participate in the class. There are several grading schemes and options.

Multivariate Research Methods I only: General Studies ECTS 3 (pass/fail) or 6 (graded).

Multivariate Research Methods II (in addition to ECTS received for MRM I) : General Studies ECTS 3.

Suggested readings: Agresti, Alan and Barbara Finley (various editions): „Statistical Methods for the Social Sciences,” Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall. Additional readings for MRM II will be provided in class. ‹‹ weniger

“Understanding is the journey into the land of the other.”(Fazil Hüsnü Daglarca, poet)

To be understood stems from understanding, an ability to change perspective, and of reflection. In order to act socially sustainably in organisations, people are obliged to deal with a growingly complex role set in competent ways. Key competences and social skills play a vital role in dealing with the complexity of human diversity. Is it enough to travel, to attend a training, to read a book for “intercultural competence”? Probably it is not. In this trainings-seminar, approaches of intercultural understanding are examined in 7 workshops of 3 full hours: Theoretical frameworks are laid out, exercises and levels of reflection are experienced. Enlightenment and practical value from different approaches are examined. Participants explore the issue interactively with theory and by exercises, always in the light of entering a probably intercultural work life in the near future.

Framework: Social sustainability is one of three global goals noted in the Rio Convention 1992 by the UN World Commission of Environment and Development. While economic sustainability is a booster of change for modern organisations, ecological sustainability remains a constant task, while social sustainability is less looked at in the everyday workplace. Therefore, it is important to understand how organisational structures and subjective processing and coping are interlinked. This General Studies is comprised of four parts: 1 Postmodern issues, 2 Selected solutions, 3 Issues of further in-depth investigation, 4 Intercultural communication. It is based on sociological and psychological knowledge, focussing on theories and praxis concepts that allow gathering an understanding on how organisations and their role actors can shape a workplace “socially sustainably”. All seminar parts can be studied separately, or as a row.

The seminar uses English as a lingua franca. Coping with the effects of this setting is part of the reflection within the course, referring to differences between communication, comprehension and understanding within the working environment. Students are supported to express themselves. The interactive setting combines theoretical and practical parts, supporting reflection of own experiences. Students should be willing to participate in this manner. A field exploration for research-based learning will be part of this terms requirements.

Open for 1st semester students and above, recommended for Bachelor students before their internship and thesis, as well as for Master students, and open to Erasmus students and to students of other faculties. Please note: this course is limited to 20 participants.

2 SWS: Fortnightly, starting in the 2nd week of the term, (probably) Tuesdays 6 – 9 pm; 3 hours (s.t.!). Please register reliable via Stud.IP for your participation.
