Study Program Q+

Would you like to further your education beyond the boundaries of your degree program? Are you interested in finding out how diverse academic disciplines work (together) and how they can be combined? You like thinking outside the box, are naturally curious and have always wanted to know more?

Then the Q+ study program is the right place for you!

Q+ is a flexible add-on program to your normal JGU degree program which allows you to expand your studies within an interdisciplinary group of students coming from all faculties. Together we tackle current scientific and social issues.

In the summer term of 2023, for example, some of the topics that we are discussing are:

Why is there no contraceptive pill for men? Will cryptocurrencies inevitably lead to the abolishment of cash? What are the effects of Putin’s war of aggression against Ukraine on the relations between Germany and Russia? Are there ways out of poverty? What are the consequences of water shortages in Germany?

Our interdisciplinary Q+ courses are developed by Q+ students, JGU instructors, as well as external cooperating partners from all over the world. In addition, as a Q+ student you also gain access to selected courses and lectures from the regular JGU course catalogue of JGU that you could not attend otherwise, and we are also offering exciting internships, field trips and (international) exchange opportunities.

After your successful participation in a certain number of courses you will  receive the Q+  certificate of completion.
