EPG Courses at the University of Tübingen in the Summer Semester 2019

On behalf of the Prorector for Students, Studies and Teaching, the following events for the Ethical-Philosophical Basic Studies (EPG) in SS 2019 will be reported to the Examination Office of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences of the University of Tübingen and the Tübingen branch office 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.
