Courses for the Ethical-Philosophical Basic Studies (EPG) at the University of Tübingen in winter semester 2020/21

On behalf of the Prorector for Students, Studies and Teaching, the following courses for the Ethical-Philosophical Foundation Studies (EPG) in the winter semester 2020/21 are reported to the Examination Office of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Tübingen and the Tübingen branch of the State Teacher Examination Office.

The successful attendance of the EPG 1 event is recommended as a prerequisite for the attendance of an EPG 2 event. The EPG courses can be chosen freely, i.e. the EPG courses do not have to come from the studied subject combination.
