Cultural Studies

Different perspectives and pluralism are part of the Cultural Studies major. The cultural sciences study different facets of culture. This can involve attending a lecture about architecture, reading a philosophical text or participating in a seminar about a television series. You choose your own subject areas and pursue them with passion.

Please note

The Cultural Studies major is offered in the German language and is thus directed at prospective students with a good command of German. The programme’s German-language web pages provide detailed information needed on the content of the course and application procedures.

Course Structure

The Cultural Studies major is embedded in the interdisciplinary College study model with Leuphana Semester, Minor and Complementary Studies. You start your Bachelor studies with the Leuphana semester. The first semester at Leuphana College gives you the opportunity to deal fundamentally with science. The Minor deepens or supplements your Major with another subject area. In Complementary Studies you have the freedom to pursue your thirst for knowledge individually by immersing yourself in a different field of knowledge each semester.

Possible combinations of minors (subsidiary subjects)
