Languages, texts, literature, films and other media representations do not simply depict reality, they also shape it.

Prof. Dr. Susanne Bach

The Department of Humanities and Cultural Studies is a broad-based, diverse teaching, research, and educational unit that is distinguished by the richness of its subjects and subject cultures. It consists of the Institutes of English/American Studies, Romance Studies, and German Studies with German as a Foreign and Second Language (DaFZ), as well as the Institutes of Protestant Theology, Catholic Theology, and Philosophy.

The department in figures

32 professors
7 subjects
42 study programs
1 postgraduate study program

The sciences belonging to the department focus on the intellectual and cultural environment, insofar as we encounter it as "text". We understand culture as being linked in a complex way to the medium of language, which is a central means of organizing human coexistence. The humanities and cultural studies stimulate the self-reflective potential of our living environment(s) in the past, present and future. They make an important contribution to the training of thinking, understanding and interpretation.

Interdisciplinarity is not only a top priority at the Department of Humanities and Cultural Studies, but is also practiced, for example in the doctoral college GeKKo , in interdisciplinary certificate courses and lecture series or in interdisciplinary teaching and research projects. Last but not least, the department sees itself as a partner of the city of Kassel and the region Nordhessen . Worthy of mention here are, for example, the „Integrierte Studienwerkstatt Sprachen“ or the professorship „Werk und Wirkung der Brüder Grimm“ .
