Supplementary studies – for topics that concern everyone.
The benefit of supplementary studies
In addition to our degree programmes that lead to academic degrees, we offer various further areas as supplementary studies. Are you interested in sustainability, intersectionality research, interculturality research, didactics of German as a second language, or theatre didactics? Then enrol in the respective supplementary course of study, and immerse yourself in topics that have relevance beyond one single degree programme – whether just for yourself, to realize your professional goals, or for the good of our society. The good news is that the supplementary courses of study listed here are open to all students at the University of Bayreuth. They can usually be integrated flexibly into your studies, and usually conclude with the awarding of a certificate. Your point of contact for any general questions regarding supplementary studies is Student Advising.

In so-called module studies, individual modules from bachelor's and master's degree programmes can be completed and concluded with an examination. You can find more information on this option on the website of the Student Administration Office. We have summarised the range of possible module studies in the respective semester for you in an overview. In addition, the University of Bayreuth cooperates with the Virtual University of Bavaria, to enable students from Bayreuth to take courses there as well.
Subject-specific additional courses of study
Not all additional courses offered at the University of Bayreuth are freely accessible, some are also bound to certain main courses of study. You can find an overview here.
