Course description

The course immerses students in multi- and interdisciplinary methods from the outset, fostering independent and self-reflective work in multicultural settings. Students select at least one specialization area to gain advanced scientific expertise, which they then apply in their master's thesis. They also integrate this focus with supplementary modules from other disciplines. Additionally, students can learn or deepen their knowledge of a South Asian language by pairing it with a minor subject from the master's program offered by the linguistics departments at the South Asia Institute.
