What career perspectives do I have?

With the program’s main focus being the interdisciplinary »design turn« in research, students acquire interdisciplinary skills relating to a broad spectrum of empirical methodologies that encompass cultural studies and humanities through analysis and historicizing, scientific experimentalisation from the natural sciences, and creative synthesis from the design disciplines.

The program prepares students in specific social and intercultural competencies, including critical reflection in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team; linguistic skills (English, German, Spanish); and experience in communication between internationally differentiated cultures of knowledge.
