Preparatory course for humanities subjects (Geisteswissenschaftliches Propädeutikum, GWP)

Have you chosen to study a humanities subject (languages, literature, history, art history or philosophy)? The GWP offers subject-specific and interdisciplinary support at the beginning of your studies. 

The GWP program begins before beginning of the semester, with the traditional preparatory course and the buddy program “Rookie meets Pro” and in close cooperation with inter-university cooperation partners. The program also offers a series of teaching events, crash courses and individual events.

At the beginning of your studies, the GWPO offers support in the following areas:

  • Getting to know your study program and subject,
  • introduction to the general basics of the humanities subjects,
  • introduction to the methodic and technical basics of your study program,
  • interdisciplinary skills,
  • finding out about career perspectives.
