Welcome to the Faculty of Human Sciences

Our teaching and research facilities are located at the campuses Golm and Am Neuen Palais. The Faculty is divided into two structural units: Educational Sciences and Cognitive Sciences. Teaching is organized in five departments: Teacher Training, Educational Science, Psychology, Linguistics, and Sports and Health Sciences. 63 professors teach and research at the Faculty. Every year, about 4,500 students and doctoral candidates are trained, and the number is increasing. We are particularly proud of the Collaborative Research Centre “Limits of Variability in Language: Cognitive, Grammatical, and Social Aspects”.
