FAQ

Graduates are able to elaborate, evaluate and implement scientific issues in the fields of cultural studies and to apply the skills required in interdisciplinary contexts. They possess scientifically well-founded theoretical and methodical problem-solving skills and multidisciplinary competences such as presentation skills, information and self-management.

The Bachelor’s Programme European Ethnology is grouped among the humanities.Graduates have the competence to ethnographically observe and describe cultural processes and their effects in order to analyse them with cultural science theories and models.

Students thus acquire abstraction abilities and learn to think in terms of comprehensive connections. In this context, they develop awareness of the questions of social constructions such as historicity, modernization, identity politics, globalization, gender etc., and they learn to relativize their own point of view. With its comparative and cultural-relativistic perspective, the Bachelor’s Programme in European Ethnology also promotes constructivist thinking and enables students to critically reflect their own assumptions and categories of perception.

Until the completion of the study programme, students develop critical reflection skills which enable them to apply European-ethnological knowledge to cultural problems by formulating and substantiating scientific arguments.

The Bachelor’s Programme European Ethnology prepares graduates for a wide range of occupational fields, such as in documentation, collecting, museums and exhibitions, libraries and publishing, public relations, cultural journalism, adult education, developmental work, cultural policy and administration, tourism as well as intercultural social work and cultural management.
