For Teachers and Researchers

The provision of excellent methodological training is our common goal. To this end, the team at the Center for Methods offers complementary and detailed assistance for the major and minor degree programmes. Truly diverse, this assistance covers a wide range of quantitative, qualitative, cultural studies, and inter- and transdisciplinary methods.  

You are searching for literature or useful webpages for your students or own research projects? Have a look at our Method Toolbox, which is constantly updated and developed. Here you find recommendations and suggestions sorted by study fields. 

You are an expert of methods youself and search for interdisciplinary exchange? Then become a member of our Research Communities and get to know our associate members at the Leuphana University. Contact: Prof. Dr. Christoph Wegener or PD Dr. Michael Dellwing.

The Center for Methods contributes to Methodological courses of complementary studies, too. For examples, visit below mentioned links:

Consultation Service

Methods Toolbox

With the Methods Toolbox, the Center for Methods offers all researchers "help to self-help" in a variety of research areas. You will be able to find literature tips, an overview of what Leuphana offers in the area of individual research methods, and further links.


You would like to offer introductions to specific methods or software within your seminar? Work with us on concepts for Team Teaching!


With the inter- and transdisciplinary workshop discussions from 2014 to 2016, the Center for Methods created a framework in which questions of undisciplined and transdisciplinary research, as well as non-specialist and interdisciplinary methodologies were discussed.

Td Summer School

Since 2012 the Leuphana University has annualy hosted a Summer School on transdisciplinary research. For more information see our website.

Research Service

Support in the fields of funding, research- and career planning, promotion of young researchers, knowledge transfer and business start-up can be found at our Research Service.
