Internationalization at the faculty
The Faculty of Humanities sees internationalization, within the scope of the University’s internationalization strategy, as a task that cuts across research, teaching, and education generally. This is why we support the world-wide activities of teachers, researchers, students, and guests through various measures and funding programs. The faculty is beholden to the University’s areas of activity and uses the measures set forth by Internationalisierung@home. It aims to promote international and intercultural skills in an international environment. The vice dean’s office for international affairs advises members of the faculty in matters related to internationalization and provides information about current measures and University funding programs in close cooperation with the Department of International Affairs.
Student mobility (Erasmus+)
The Faculty of Humanities advocates for students to study and research abroad while pursuing their bachelor’s and master’s degrees and doctorates. This is why the faculty has 5 international, English-language master’s programs and mandatory stays abroad in many of their degree programs. Undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students in the faculty should, for example, be able to do a stay at an Erasmus partner university, learn more about different teaching and studying formats, understand new (academic) languages,methods, and theories, and strengthen their intercultural academic profiles.
The Erasmus office provides support and advice to teaching staff and students in the Faculty of Humanities, especially visiting students, on questions and organizational matters related to their stay at Universität Hamburg as well as students in the faculty who wish to go abroad to one of our partner universities.
