Educational Goals

Our study programs acquaint students with the skills needed to address the globalization and sustainability challenges of this millennium. The future world needs people with comprehensive knowledge of strategies for sustainability and governance to provide leadership for local and global communities.

Serving different study programs, another pillar is teaching methodological skills needed for empirical science. The focus of these lectures is on understanding methodology, which means getting acquainted to the basic procedures, knowing about their features, being able to implement them by means of professional statistical software and to reflect and interpret the outcomes of statistical reasoning critically. Finally, the ubiquitous role of statistics in science as well as in society is illustrated.
