The Department of Sociology at UNIVIE is a dynamic institute providing higher education – undergraduate (B.A.) and graduate (M.A. and doctoral) programs –undertaking also substantial research in the area of Social Sciences broadly conceived from work/organization and gender to migration/life course and inequalities, from urban studies, media and education to culture and media. It has a particularly broad spectrum of theoretical and methodological approaches, from large quantitative surveys to more qualitative oriented ethnographic work, including mixed methods. Drawing on a long tradition of research in the humanities and social sciences, the Department of Sociology investigates how social structures change, disentangling the complexities that the process brings about.
