Intercultural Certificate, Department of Informatics
Among their many activities, some of our students volunteer for the MINGA Mentoring Program, plan a stay abroad, or take language courses that do not count towards their course of study. Alternatively, those enrolled on one of our English-language master’s programs attend courses to learn more about German customs and work environments, as well as the German language. However, these extracurricular activities generally do not appear on their grade report.
