A number of initiatives, teams and departments have emerged at UZH in recent years, dealing with interdisciplinary questions, topics and challenges, and developing transdisciplinary courses. To promote cross-disciplinary teaching and combine these efforts under a common roof, UZH set up a School for Transdisciplinary Studies (STS) at the beginning of 2021.
The STS’s initial portfolio comprises five modules, which are open to students from all faculties. Designed to supplement Bachelor’s and Master’s programs, the courses enable students to consider their own subject in relation to others and to capitalize on academic differences.
The students also acquire skills that are becoming increasingly important to employers, such as the ability to link up different viewpoints, to consider problems from different perspectives and to work in interdisciplinary teams. The focus section of the new UZH Journal presents these new transdisciplinary courses.
