The School of Humanities unites under its roof the following subjects: English and American Studies, French Studies, German Studies, History, Spanish Studies, Italian Studies, Media and Communication Studies and Philosophy. The School distinguishes itself by its close links both between the subjects and with the other schools at the University of Mannheim. This interdisciplinary orientation manifests itself above all in the bachelor’s and master’s programs in Culture and Economy. However, it is a fundamental feature of all our bachelor's, master's, and teacher education programs.
Accordingly, research at the School of Humanities focuses primarily on the interaction between culture, society and business, which is examined from an interdisciplinary, international, and intercultural perspective.
At the School of Humanities, we attach particular importance to the international orientation of our programs. We offer our students an above-average number of exchange places abroad and an English-language Summer School that takes place every year. International doctoral dissertation and research projects are an integral part of the School.
