Kulturwissenschaft (Bachelor of Arts)

Uniquely versatile: The Koblenz degree program in Kulturwissenschaft is characterized first and foremost by the interplay between the subjects of anthropology, media studies and philosophy.

The purpose of the degree program is to provide graduates with professional qualifications in areas where cultural sensitivity and intercultural competence are in high demand. This requires a sound knowledge of the structure and significance of culture in a globalized world as well as versatile communication skills. To achieve this objective the program is based on an integrative concept that includes the subjects English Studies, Romance Studies, History, Sociology, Protestant Theology, Catholic Theology, Art and Music Theory.

Its practical orientation is an important aspect: Ethnographic field research and applied conversational research are just as much a part of the program as are workshops and student projects aimed at acquiring practical media skills.

Thanks to its sound theoretical and practical orientation, the degree program qualifies graduates for a range of interesting professions, for instance in cultural and educational management, in the media (e.g. cultural and business journalism), in (international) business corporations, in politics and in international organizations. The Bachelor’s degree is also required for admission to a subsequent Master’s degree program.
