How did your studies prepare you for what you do today?

"I learned that bold initiative, commitment and communication pay off especially during my ZU time, and now I benefit from this in my Master's program, where I am completely free to pursue my research projects and ideas. In particular, the Humboldt Year prepared me to deal with unusual freedom in a university context."

When I look back on my ZU time today...

"... bouncing chairs, tables, benches! I am very grateful for the intense, diverse encounters and friendships that were formed at the lake and marvel at the feeling of a homegrown culture of discussion when I attend ZU alumni gatherings, no matter the city."

Why SPE?

"SPE demands in required courses to fundamentally and invariably start from different
perspectives, but then supports in seminars and term papers to develop individual opinions in this muddle."

What type of person would you recommend studying SPE to?

"Project students with theory ambitions! The SPE study program enables the independent interweaving of theory and practice through a wide range of student initiatives, which can always be supplemented further, and the versatile seminars, in which there is a free choice of topics. Concretely experienced challenges in practice can thus be worked on theoretically in a seminar paper, which I enjoyed very much."
