Department Transversalis

Current social issues? We ask questions.

The Transversalis (ATV) department launches and works on topics that often affect the entire LSFM department:

"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
