Studying and teaching at the faculty of cultural studies

The faculty's Bachelor and Master programs are part of the innovative study models that the Leuphana University implements at the College and Graduate School. They focus on a thorough professional education as well as on the interdisciplinary interweaving of different knowledge complexes. Choices, scope for individual specialization and study models that emphasize the independence and personal responsibility of students with intensive supervision by the teaching staff are important characteristics of the Cultural Studies programs.

Both faculty and students work together on the further development and improvement of the study programs: annual discussion groups (quality circles) are just as important components of high-quality studies as regular course evaluations and student surveys. Numerous courses of the faculty have been awarded the "Leuphana Teaching Award" for innovative teaching in the past.
