The Faculty of Applied Social Sciences is characterised by a high degree of Interdisciplinarity. It consists of professors from different disciplines (e.g. social work, sociology, psychology, law, music therapy) with different research emphases.

The bundling of these different competences enables exceptional interdisciplinary research, allows questions from different disciplines to be dealt with in many projects, giving the Faculty of Applied Social Sciences a unique selling proposition.

In addition to the activities of individual research professors of the faculties, the research activities of the FHWS are bundled in six application-oriented institutes and expanded in over 90 laboratories. In addition, there is a Ombudsman to ensure good scientific work and it always acts according to the guidelines of scientific practice.
