Some additional Information on the Master degree program "Education - Culture - Anthropology"

The research-oriented Master degree program "Education - Culture - Anthropology" was developed in the years 2006 and 2007, parallel to the developement of the research focus "Laboratorium Aufklärung".

The chair of historical pedagogy (Prof. Dr. Dr. Ralf Koerrenz) and the chair of general pedagogy (Prof. Dr. Michael Winkler), the chair of comparative pedagogy (JProf. Dr. Karsten Kenklies) as well as the chair of adult education (Prof. Dr. Käthe Schneider) are responsible for the educational basic orientation.

The functional core of the MA "Education - Culture - Anthropology" is situated in educational science, and is simultaneously interdisciplinarily (and across faculties) invested in the area of social sciences and humanities.

Protestant theology, classical and ancient studies, german language and literature studies, cultural science, political science and sociology are involved.

The goal of the program lies within the awareness of the fundamental significance of Bildungsdenken in its historical development for the modern self-awareness of mankind.

In the background lies the question, how the principle Bildung is conceptually and normatively set at the base for development and learning processes, which are triggered and organised socially, culturally as well as individually.

Bildung is understood as a challenge, which has experienced its cruical culmination by the normative demand of the Enlightenment: the "free" human being stands before the task to act according to his own limits and possibilities and to develop an according power of judgement in this framework.

All this happens in a global horizon, which is represented by the UNESCO, among others.

Within the scope of the Institute for Education and Culture (IBK), the degree program is considered a foundation for the participation in the discussion of an "Education for all" with a perspective based on the relationship of education and culture.
