DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

The course programme Material Culture: Textiles is related to cultural studies. It examines every day things, their appearance, workmanship, and composition, their history, current uses and diverse meanings from a variety of perspectives. This programme in Oldenburg is distinguished by its use of approaches from ethnology, cultural anthropology, and cultural representation through artistic-scientific as well as scientific-technical approaches. The goal is to learn to analyse, represent, and participate in the cultural rules and dynamics of modern societies through their material culture. One of the programme's focal points is textiles, especially clothing, in a broad context including material culture, body, media, design, and sustainability. The curriculum is designed to allow students to choose their own modules freely after the first year, making a number of individual specialisations possible.
After successfully completing sic semesters, students are awarded a bachelor's degree, which qualifies them to move directly into the labour market. Alternatively, students may choose to continue their studies with a Master of Arts (M.A.) or a Master of Education (M.Ed.). What is new in these internationally recognised degrees is that they feature a greater degree of structure and continuous assessment, which contributes to continual learning and makes entry into the programmes somewhat easier, especially at the beginning. The bachelor's programme is distinguished by its practical orientation, which includes study abroad, internships, academic English, communication/rhetoric, and instruction in applying for jobs, preparing students in concrete ways for their future careers.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

The goal of this bachelor's programme is to qualify graduates to work in areas relating to cultural studies. Opportunities depend a great deal on the specific subject combinations that students choose, as well as their choice of internships and voluntary placements, but this degree is nonetheless an important qualification for work in the cultural field, in museums, in culture and fashion journalism, in the arts and media, in culture management, consumer advice, NGOs, and in education (outside of a school context).The consecutive interdisciplinary masters programmes Cultural Analysis: Representation, Performativity, Gender (with a research component) and Museum and Exhibition (with a practical component in a museum) build upon this bachelor's degree programme. Students can move on to the doctoral programme in Cultural and Gender Studies after completing their master's degrees. In addition to the degrees offered at the University of Oldenburg, students may pursue master's degree programmes in the fields of cultural studies and European ethnology or cultural anthropology at other universities.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admittance to a Master’s Program
