More about University of Tübingen
The Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen is one of Europe’s oldest universities. Several hundred years of history in the sciences and humanities have been written here. Tübingen today remains a place of research and teaching. In addition to the nearly 86,000 inhabitants, there are some 28,500 German and international students. Some 450 professors and more than 4000 other academic staff teach at the University’s seven faculties.
The latest chapter of the University’s history is marked by its success in the German federal and state governments’ Excellence Initiative. One Graduate School, one Excellence Cluster and the University’s Institutional Strategy were successful in the major funding program – also making Tübingen one of Germany’s eleven universities in the top “Excellent” class.
I stated studying at the University of Tübingen in winter 2012. I choose Medienwissenschaft (“Media Science”) as my major and Erziehungswissenschaft (“Education”) as my minor. During the first two semesters I gathered a strong theoretical basis in both subjects. I learned about the most important theories and ideas aswell as the history. In my second year the topcis got more practical and I recieved plenty input about different kinds of media or different fields of work in the educational sector.
