About BA Society, Media, and Politics at Jacobs University Bremen

The BA-program Society, Media and Politics (SMP) integrates the social sciences necessary to tackle the key challenges of our globalized world in a digitized context. Sociology, media studies and political sciences are learned from a problem-solving and research-oriented, student-centered perspective.

Students are empowered to address pressing social problems in their environment by applying their knowledge and skills not only in research but also in direct practice. They learn about their social environment on field excursions, discuss political conditions and possible solutions to social issues and learn to campaign for their initiatives with the skillful use of digital media, for example by producing their own videos or animations. Innovative forms of assessment allow them to integrate these forms of activity in their curriculum. Our students are young people who want to make a difference.

Also, SMP students are offered the unique opportunity to acquire a broad spectrum of media skills, professionally guided by our media team and provided with the necessary technical equipment by our SMP Media Center. All basic equipment for the production of media projects, be that video or animation, graphic design or podcasts, are accessible to our students in the SMP Media Center.

SMP provides an excellent basis both for graduate studies and the European and international job market for the leaders of tomorrow. Our graduates are known to build successful careers in start-ups and NGOs as well as in large companies; they have moved on to the most renowned academic institutions of the world, some of them developing impressive careers in academia; they have been successful in the most diverse branches of economy too – e.g. in finance. This is because creative problem solving, the ability to judge from a broader perspective and to think out of the box are faculties that are in very high demand in positions of leadership. Our students obtain positions that cannot be substituted by machines.

SMP (formerly Integrated Social Studies) is rated as one of the best study programs in the field of social and political sciences in Germany by the renowned CHE (Center for Higher Education Development) University Ranking
