About Training & Resources

The University of Leipzig offers a unique range of study and training programmes in the field of area studies and regional sciences. The demand for such courses offered is reflected in the high number of applications from bachelor and master’s students at the university’s institutes as well as PhD students at the Research Academy Leipzig coming from other universities and institutions of higher learning, both inside and outside of Germany.

This structure of study programmes provides the necessary specialization as well as training in thinking "outside the box", which is the necessary basis for research activities at CAS. At the same time, the research outcome of projects at CAS directly influences the curricula in the aforementioned study programmes. Furthermore, the Centre for Area Studies promotes the internationalization of MA and PhD teaching at the University of Leipzig as well as interdepartmental training, while supporting exchange programmes for study and research.
