Göttingen Uni offers a wide range of key competency options. So first you need to get an overview and work out where you want to go.
Key competencies for students of a specific degree programme or faculty
You can find information on subject-specific key competencies - namely, those endorsed by your subject for your degree programme - by selecting your degree programme under your faculty in the course catalogue on ECampus . Typically, you will find the section on key competencies either directly under your degree programme or listed under the professionalisation area.
For students enrolled in the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Humanities, there is a separate interdisciplinary key competency offer, which is mapped at the level of the degree programmes.
Key competencies for all students
In addition, there is a wide range of key competencies open to all students (see also under "Small print"). These include courses from central institutions such as the ZESS and modules from many degree programmes. You can find these under the Overview of central and cross-faculty key competency offerings.
