University of Magdeburg anchors sustainability in teaching
The Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg will firmly anchor the topic of sustainability in its teaching with the introduction of a new interdisciplinary study programme. Starting in the winter semester of 2021/22, students from all disciplines at the university will be able to acquire a so-called Sustainability Certificate. This additional university teaching offer is unique in Saxony-Anhalt.
The certificate is acquired by attending both courses already offered and newly designed courses tailored to the topic of sustainability and is handed out separately from the final certificate. In terms of content, the focus is on the three subject areas of the fundamentals of sustainability, business and technology, as well as society and politics. The courses are interdisciplinary and are offered by different faculties.
The new study offer is open to all students who are enrolled at the University of Magdeburg. There are no additional fees.
