Huwi international

Welcome to the website of the representative of internationalization for the humanities faculty (Huwi) at the University of Bamberg, Univ.-Prof. Dr. Claus-Christian Carbon!


The representative of internalization’s goal is to improve, expand and professionalize the internationalization of the whole Huwi faculty.

English as an Academic and Teaching Language

English is to be increasingly embedded as an academic and teaching language at the Huwi faculty.

In order to achieve this, we offer language courses (see below) aimed at supporting communication as well as scientific exchange in English. More information can be found here: (contact person: Don Watson, Sprachenzentrum)

We are also creating an increasing range of courses in order to reduce language barriers for our students abroad as well as to heighten our faculty’s appeal for students from other countries.

Current courses for English reading and writing skills can be found here.

Very Broad and Engaging Range of Courses

The humanities faculty is overall characterized by a very broad and engaging range of courses. This enables us to also offer courses on niche topics which heightens our attractiveness to foreign students.

In addition, professionally specific courses are offered that enable exchange students to receive credits which are acknowledged by their universities.

Current courses taught in English can be found here.
