Reasons for the BSSF

The BSSF is the right place for you.

Here are 9 reasons why you should study at BSSF:


We offer problem-solving skills through education.

Education is knowledge of the rules that determine social interactions, the environment and the use of nature, which shape communities in a sustainable way and thus express ideas about how people live together. These types of systems of rules often have a long historical origin and serve the profound understanding of cultural, social and sustainable developments when their genesis and context are considered. This type of knowledge gives rise to problem-solving skills and ethical action in relation to the world’s pressing problems.


We connect cultures through communications.

Global and local communication processes have become the determining factor in human society, not just civil society. Every message is socially interpreted, processed, managed and used. So students should be able to scientifically analyse such processes in order to be able to design and implement communication processes that build on these processes and that are ethically sound and oriented towards an enlightened social system. We want to impart competencies and skills concerned with international business communication and the discourse-oriented coexistence of different cultures.


We offer excellence through the development of dual expertise in research and practice.

Teaching at BSSF is research-based. Not only theoretical but also application-based knowledge is acquired through the early involvement of our students in research and practical projects. This leads to excellence.


Our mindset is interdisciplinary.

Sustainability, transculturality, but also media and innovations, interdisciplinary thinking and analysis shape the foundations necessary to make decisions. This is because interaction and impact processes only become transparent in this way.


You will become part of a network.

Constant involvement in companies, ministries and organisations offers you a versatile network of contacts. After finding a responsible mentor, you will benefit from their experiences and contacts.


You will enjoy access to our library.

In our library you will not only find specialist books for the degree programmes, but also a wide range of publications from philosophy, media studies and art history. We are also digitally linked with all libraries in the world, and of course you will gain access to all major libraries in Berlin.

Berlin ranks among the excellent academic regions in Europe. The city is cosmopolitan and innovative. There is always something going on here: Berlin is open 24 hours a day. The Berlinale, Karneval der Kulturen, big sporting events, the world’s best orchestras and lots of events are on every day – and you will be right in the middle of it all.
