Studying at the Marsilius Kolleg
The goal of the Marsilius Study Program is to create an opportunity for interdisciplinary research during a degree program.
Course offerings are divided into
- 'bridge' seminars (usually interdisciplinary seminars) that are led by at least two lecturers from different scholarly cultures,
- discipline-specific courses for non-majors
- and a multidisciplinary colloquium for the interdisciplinary presentation and discussion of students' final papers.
Benefits of the Study Program
Rounding out a degree program with interdisciplinary study has several benefits:
- Many students find broadening their academic horizons a personally enriching experience. Interdisciplinarity is fun!
- The dialogue with different scholarly cultures fosters individual communication and critical skills.
- Interdisciplinary approaches are becoming increasingly important in academia as well as in business.
- Experiencing different perspectives can benefit one's own studies.
The Commission for the Marsilius Study Program has authority over matters such as the selection of courses.
