The Q+ program is home to a continually growing community of open-minded and curious individuals who want to know more. The Q+ community forges bridges between society and academia. Members include students and instructors from the JGU and external institutions that are instrumental in making Mainz the center of science and research that it is, as well as other cooperation partners who shape culture and society.
For current impressions of Q+ courses and community events, you can follow the Q+ student representatives Instagram account here (in German).
Members of Q+ not only learn alongside each other – they learn from each other. This is why discussion and exchange are so essential in the Q+ student community. Disciplinary and interdisciplinary cooperation is not limited to shared seminars, projects, or field trips – this scholarly exchange also takes place outside of the classroom at our regular Q+ Salons and other events.
We would be delighted to welcome to our program. If you are not (yet) a Q+ student and you would like to speak with us or other Q+ students about their experience, just send us an email at StudienprogrammQPlus@uni-mainz.de. We will be happy to provide you with information about upcoming events.
Our goal is to make available the resources offered by the city of Mainz – as a center of science and learning –to students at the JGU.
Cooperation with external partners enables Q+ to build bridges not only between students and instructors at the JGU, but also between business and culture. It is thanks to this networking that new approaches are found to address questions of societal relevance. Our cooperation partners also benefit from working with Q+ students, who represent all disciplinary backgrounds at the JGU. These students bring fresh perspectives to bear on kinds of work being done every day at cooperation partners. So far, field trips, fireside chats, internships, exhibitions, theatrical plays, and workshops have come out of these cooperative partnerships.
If you’re thinking about developing a course format for Q+, please do get in touch with us.
