Human society in all its aspects

Sociology at the UvA focuses on the spatial and socio-economic mobility of the urban population, the rise and fall of urban lifestyles and cultures, social relations between individuals and groups, old and new forms of discrimination, inequality, and citizenship, as well as the policy dimensions.


Research is organised in three Sociology programme groups, which are part of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research:

  • Cultural Sociology
  • Political Sociology: Power, Place and Difference
  • Institutions, Inequalities, and Life courses


The University of Amsterdam offers various Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Sociology, as well as summer and winter courses related to Sociology.
