Information about the different "Focus Point: Master Studies"


An interdisciplinary approach uses knowledge and perspectives of various disciplines to research different phenomena. The combination of diverse disciplines allows a differentiated and broad analysis of problems and results in multi-facetted solutions which can be used and implemented in many fields.


The fundamental global approach of the "Focus Point: Master Studies" is emphasised by the international composition of students and faculty. The cooperation with various institutions strengthens the unique position within the international scientific environment. Students are encouraged to broaden their scientific horizon through international experience and mobility programmes.


Through their interdisciplinary approach and the combination of innovative teaching methods with highly up-to-date research fields the "Focus Point: Master Studies" offer the chance to choose an individual focus. Innovative research fields and an inspiring educational environment aim towards the development of scientific and personal interests and assets.
