Signature Courses

The Katekisama Signature Courses are a unique new way of internationalizing the curricula of the partner universities in an institutionalized manner. These courses bring together the PhD students and faculty of the participating institutions. The faculty offer intensive courses every semester for the two other universities, given current circumstances largely through online teaching, but if possible in the future also on site. PhD students learn about the distinctive epistemological and methodological approaches employed and represented by each offering institution. Through the online teaching format or the exchange of teaching staff between the different institutions, the signature course model enables an ecologically and economically sustainable form of international higher education and intellectual exchange.
