Minors (Complementary Subject Areas)   

Minors (Complementary Subject Areas) are modules corresponding to 30 ECTS-Credits that complement the subject-specific contents with contents of other disciplines/study programmes that are not available in studied programme.

Whether a Minor can be passed is specified in the respective curriculum. Successfully passed Minors are listed in the Diploma Supplement as well as in the final certificate. If a Minor has been started but not finished, then only the successfully passed modules/courses are listed.

Minors (Complementary Subject Areas) are passed within the scope of the study programmes, this means within the 180 ECTS-Credits of the Bachelor’s Programme or within the 120 ECTS-Credits of the Master’s Programme. 

Precondition

Active Bachelor: Active bachelor's and/or master's Programme at the University of Innsbruck, if the programme's curriculum provides the possibility of passing a minor (complementary subject area).

Objective

The aim of a Complementary Subject Area is to look beyond the confines of the programme studied. Students learn and research together with researchers from other specialist disciplines/study programmes and this way, they get the opportunity to establish connections between their own disciplines and others. They are able to present, reflect and “translate” for other disciplines (transdisciplinarity) their own subject’s way of thinking and approaching things.

Learning Outcome

Graduates of a Complementary Subject Area know about contents, requirements and cultures of other disciplines/study programmes. They are able to learn and work in a trans- and interdisciplinary way.

The SDGs are understood as a global plan of action for people, planet and prosperity, whose explicit goal is to counteract inequalities and "leave no one behind".

This variety is reflected in the minor.

  • have the ability to handle multidimensional and complex decision situations, which have economic, ecological and social restrictions, to analyse them and name the conditions for participatory and fair decision-making,
  • have developed an understanding of power structures that sustain the exploitation of human and non-human beings,
  • have basic knowledge of the phenomenon of climate change,
  • have knowledge of sustainable use of resources in different areas,
  • understand how education systems contribute to maintaining or overcoming unsustainable structures,
  • are aware of the challenges of sustainable development in a wide range of practical fields and have relevant knowledge in selected specialist areas that complement the field of their Bachelor’s programme,
  • have an advanced ability to think and act in a transdisciplinary way and have the ability to consider the sustainability perspective in different professional fields as well as to promote its implementation.
