The English-language bachelor's degree programme Cross-Disciplinary Strategies (CDS) has been offered by the Institute of Arts and Society since the winter semester 2017. The curriculum covers the methods and principles of art and the humanities, social and natural sciences, and economics and politics, aiming to counter the increasing fragmentation of the sciences and to equip students to deal with the complex social challenges in the 21st century world. The links between knowledge, experience and politics are developed and accessed in practical, artistic and theoretical learning units.
