Where do Germanists, historians or philologists find the best study prerequisites? And how do you find jobs later? The Studienführer Kulturwissenschaften serves high school graduates and freshmen as a guide to studying at German universities and colleges.
The Cultural Studies Studies Director summarizes all subjects dealing with history, art and culture. In addition to the history and art sciences, he also includes archeology and monument preservation, philology, ethnology, and, more recently, the new cultural sciences.
Simone Janson answers all questions about the choice of course and place of study, deals with the admission requirements and types of exams, gives tips on starting studies and informs about study structure, job prospects and the possibilities of financing. As always rounded off with a detailed address section and much more information.

Especially because there is an increasingly rare job for life: fixed-term contracts are increasingly determining professional life. Rapid incorporation into other tasks becomes mandatory. "Flexibility" is the keyword [...], which is why a cultural studies course can meet modern requirements. In addition, the author presents a rageber with her book, which offers concrete insights into the different areas of cultural studies. He not only provides information about possible contents, locations and degrees, but also shows excerpts from course catalogs, reading lists and exams […] Because: During their studies, cultural scientists learn to set and develop goals independently and to find themselves in changing subjects. Skills that may be worth gold in the job market of the future […]
Excerpt from: A brief look at working life - Three study guides, Badische Zeitung, March 2003
Most degrees are currently being converted into bachelor's and master's degrees - this creates a new confusion in the German university landscape.
