About the Department

The Department of History and Social Sciences at the Technische Universität Darmstadt offers a wide range for students and prospective scientists who are curious about innovative subject areas. The department comprises six institutes where specific content is taught and researched.

Study – Doctorate – Habilitation

Information about the courses programmes and degrees as well as the possibilities to do a doctorate or habilitation can be found on the webpages of the department.

Interdisciplinary research

In addition to the specific research fields of the individual institutes, the department has focused on three interdisciplinary research priorities since 2012: Digital Humanities, Urban Research, and Transformation of Energy and Climate Policy. The focal points are anchored in various institutes. Scientists from different departments of the TU Darmstadt work together, so that “interdisciplinary research” is actually lived here.
