Due to the re-accreditation of the BA and MA degree programs in sociology, transitional regulations are required for the students of these degree programmes.
Bachelor students: the new study and examination regulations apply from the winter semester 2018/19 and apply to all BA students, including students in the minor subject of sociology. It is not possible to opt for remaining in the old study regulations, as a transition to the new regulations is possible without any disadvantages.
Master students: the new study and examination regulations will apply from the winter semester 2018/19 to all students who have commenced their MA studies before the semester in question. There is an 'opt-out' rule: if you have special reasons to stay in the previous study programme, you should apply to the Examination Office for a stay until 31.3.2019. All other students will automatically be transferred to the new MA.
