Academic Programme


Fascinatingly varied: The Faculty of Humanities offers a fascinating variety of over 40 subjects for the Bachelor and Master programmes. We have unique possibilities for selection and combination, even with subjects from other faculties, something that enables you to establish your own focus. In most subjects, you learn intensively in small groups and therefore quickly come into close contact to the teachers and fellow students. The academic programmes in Humanities/Cultural Studies in Göttingen are characterised by the combination of a long tradition with modern learning possibilities. You are following in the footsteps of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, Dorothea Schlözer and Jürgen Habermas! Study with internationally renowned experts today. Furthermore, Göttingen offers you a wide range of advisory services for all phases of the academic programme and a lively student and cultural life in one of Germany's greenest cities. Students also appreciate our international atmosphere. It is characterised by a high number of international students and the many different languages and cultural landscapes taught and researched in our 28 seminar courses. Our speciality: Career orientation is taken into consideration from the very beginning. That is why there is a wide portfolio of key competence workshops, events on career orientation, as well as career counselling specially for scientists and scholars working in the Humanities and Cultural Studies.
