Faculty I - Humanities and Educational Sciences

Humanistic values and technological expertise

Bringing together technological and natural scientific expertise on the one hand and theoretical and historical reflection on the other has been the goal of Technische Universität Berlin since 1946. Today, one of the central tasks of the Faculty’s teaching and research is to build bridges between humanities and the educational sciences and the technical and natural sciences. The bachelor’s degree in Culture and Technology is just one of the programs which highlights this specific educational profile. In this program, interdisciplinary studies and core subjects in humanities and education are combined with a professional orientation. The program also offers students access to nine research-oriented master’s programs. The Faculty further offers degree programs in language, literature, philosophy, history of science and technology, art and urban history, and education, as well as nine bachelor’s and master’s and six master’s teacher training programs that are specifically oriented towards professional education and work studies: these study offers are one of a kind in Berlin.

The Faculty has six main fields of research: interdependency of culture and technology, cultural heritage as a resource, language and communication, heterogeneity of modern societies, organization of educational processes, and research of knowledge. Partner universities in 18 European countries offer comprehensive possibilities for international exchange in research and teaching. The Center for Research on Antisemitism, Center for Interdisciplinary Women’s and Gender Studies, and Center for Cultural Studies on Science and Technology in China also contribute to TU Berlin’s profile in humanities and educational sciences.
