General Studies (GS) in bachelor studies

Besides subject-related contents, students on bachelor study programs can also take courses in General Studies (GS). General Studies allow students, alongside their subject-related key competences, to acquire interdisciplinary competences and come to grips with ethical aspects of their discipline. They are also relevant for Career preparation and orientation.
