Notes on writing written papers

It is desirable that you pursue your own research interests in written work. The instructions for finding a topic at Bielefeld University can help you. Please also note the guidelines for the creation and design of scientific work at the chair.

Student theses

The chair supervises theses that deal with social science issues relating to work, employment, organization and society. The suggestions in the list of topics represent only a small selection of the possible content references. Ideally, the candidates choose their specific question of interest and bring previous knowledge of the content in the chosen area.

If you are interested in writing your thesis at the Chair of Economic and Industrial Sociology, please make an appointment for a personal interview and let us know your course and the desired degree (BA / MA) as well as the subject area for which you are interested interested in, and in which courses you have already acquired knowledge.
