The Faculty of Humanities is the academic home to the social, cultural and educational sciences at Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg. In this connection, human beings are central, both as individuals and in collective terms, as well as in their social, cognitive, emotional and psychological relationships to their social reality, which in turn unfolds in the political context. In respect to the future demands on a society in constant flux, education and the acquisition of qualifications and skills are coming ever more sharply into focus, the more so as they remain with a person throughout their life.
To this end, the development of meaningful analytical methods and scientifically substantiated concepts, such as for dealing with digital media, are just as essential as interdisciplinary connections between research projects and study programmes with the engineering and scientific disciplines at Otto-von-Guericke-University. With its interdisciplinary range of subjects and academic expertise, the Faculty of Humanities is perfectly equipped to meet these challenges.
