The Transversalis (ATV) department launches and works on topics that often affect the entire LSFM department:
- We teach Bachelor students of all disciplines basic skills in the areas of languages, communication, culture and society, ethics, biology and individual STEM fields. In this way, we promote critical and scientific thinking from the very beginning of their studies.
- With various activities, we awaken and strengthen young people's interest in STEM topics and STEM subjects.
- With offers on intercultural competence, foreign language teaching, cultural trips and language services, we open windows to other cultures and new perspectives.
- In addition, the Transversalis department designs offers in teaching, continuing education and free courses for students, teachers and staff.
"On the one hand, education is preparation for the world of work. But we also understand education as personality development with transformative potential. Creating spaces for reflection is important in order to be able to critically observe and control one's own actions and their consequences."
Karin Altermatt, Head of the Transversalis Department
