Faculty of History, Arts and Oriental Studies

Welcome

To the homepage of the Faculty of History, Arts and Oriental Studies at Universität Leipzig!

The Faculty of History, Arts and Oriental Studies was newly established in 1994 and comprises 14 institutes, some of which can relegate to a longstanding tradition at Universität Leipzig.

The Faculty manifests in its three pillars

  • Department of History
  • Institutes of Arts, Musicology and Theatre Studies
  • Regional Studies including Anthropology and Comparative Studies of Religion

a large variety of subjects and has important collections and museums (Museum of Musical Instruments, Egyptian Museum and Museum of Antiquity).

Through the combination of historical, artistic-aesthetic and systematic questions as well as through cooperation with other faculties and universities, the faculty deals – in research and teaching – with societal and cultural processes of change in past and present. Regional research focuses on Germany, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America. The disciplinary and interdisciplinary oriented humanistic profile of the faculty is represented in a large number of research projects.
