Building bridges: Studium Generale

Not only does the University of Konstanz offer students an extensive curriculum, it also presents academic content for the general public.

What are the lectures about?

The lectures examine a current topic of interest through the lens of the natural sciences, culture, economics and society. In the winter semester 2016/17, the Studium Generale focused on the topics of “migration” and “creating and recognising patterns”. Experts from various fields provided insights into the current state of research.

In most cases, these developments provide the catalyst for something new, which also greatly affects the course of history. Learn more about this in our review.
