Bachelor programmes at the HCU

The HafenCity University Hamburg offers bachelor and master programmes in all of its disciplines.

The bachelor programmes of HCU Hamburg correspond, in particular, to the current demands for a professional education and provide the relevant foundation in the respective field of study. At the same time, the growing specialisation of careers dealing with the designed environment and its economic, social and ecological constraints requires graduates to be able to understand and work with a wider range of topics, problems and protagonists. It is thus important that students have a firm foundation in their specific disciplines; at the same time, they must, however, be able to deal with the different ways in which other branches of study view, understand and interact with the world. Due to the wide range of its specific disciplines, HCU Hamburg opens up this special understanding of the neighbouring disciplines involved in the planning, design and construction within building and urban development processes. Innovation in the special range of disciplines results in innovation in each of our bachelor programmes.

Fachübergreifende Studienangebote (FaS)

Die Fachübergreifenden Studienangebote (FaSt) liegen quer zu den einzelnen Studienprogrammen und sind ein wichtiger didaktischer Baustein im Ausbildungskonzept der HCU. Sie verorten sich in den Zwischenräumen der drei Kompetenzbereiche: Natur- und Ingenieurwissenschaften, Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften sowie Entwurf und Gestaltung. Sie fördern mit ihren Veranstaltungen das Überschreiten der eigenen Fachgrenzen und ermöglichen einen Perspektivwechsel über die gewohnten Grenzen hinaus.

Die FaSt sind ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal der HCU und setzen sich zusammen aus dem Studium Generale-Programm [Q] STUDIES und den Linien Basics und Skills sowie den Interdisziplinären Projekten. Die HCU bietet in dem Querschnittprogramm rund 70 Veranstaltungen an, die wissenschaftliche, gesellschaftliche, kulturelle, ökonomische, historische und politische Fragestellungen in das Studium integrieren und darüber hinaus individuelle Fähigkeiten wie Kreativität, Kommunikations- und Handlungskompetenzen stärken.
