1. Starting Point

The University of Liechtenstein’s vision and mission statement declares: “We train highly qualified specialists for the country, for the region, and for international fields of activity. We are convinced that our graduates need not only analytical and creative skills, but also cognitive education and communication skills. Therefore we offer courses in the humanities and social sciences as an integral addition to the specialised studies, so that students can contribute their specialist knowledge into larger cultural and social contexts.” This is where the programme of “cross-faculty electives” (CFEs) comes in.

 2. Contents and Programme

The programme, which covers the fields of humanities and cultural studies, offers a wide-ranging field of content pertaining to current university teaching, scientific discourses, and research trends. Consequently, it cultivates social competence. The offerings in this area cover specific competences that are not explicitly taught within the individual faculties and are aimed at the personal development of university graduates.

3. Interdisciplinary Work as a Didactic Strategy

The CFE offerings target interdisciplinary collaboration at the interfaces between architecture and the economic sciences. This collaboration is the foundation of the didactic concept.

The following teaching models dominate the focus:

  • Problem-Based Learning
  • Self-Organised Learning
  • Team Learning
  • Visible Learning
  • Base Camp Learning
  • Service Learning

4. Humanities and Cultural Studies

Subjects and Topics:

  • Arts and Performing Arts
  • Ethnology
