Why study P&E in Bayreuth?

Interdisciplinarity & individuality

The Bayreuth P&E Programme is for the open-minded intellectual who wants rigorous training that cuts across disciplines, and who wants to innovate and engage with the world. A wide range of electives allows you to pursue your own academic interests, giving you the opportunity to carve out your own distinctive academic and professional profile.

Research-led teaching

The mission of research-led teaching is taken seriously in the P&E Programme: courses are taught by those whose research is close to the topic. P&E faculty bring their own research to the seminar room and explore novel ideas and methods with their students.

In addition, the regular research seminars and workshops organized by both departments offer you the chance to become familiar with top-level international research.

Small classes and intensive supervision

A major advantage of studying for a P&E degree in Bayreuth are small class sizes and the close contact with academic and program staff. We offer you an intellectual environment from a bygone age: peaceful and friendly, intense and personal, and highly investigative and stimulating.
