The university’s research focus "Education", which was established in 2008 alongside the research focus "Religion" at the University of Erfurt, has developed dynamically in recent years and is based on the interaction of research on education, school and behaviour. This involves research into the acquisition of competencies and the question of the conditions these acquisition is based on. This concerns language and decision making development, questions of inclusion and learning as well as health and media. In its breadth of content, its methodological diversity and homogeneity, the research focus at the University of Erfurt is increasingly popular among early stage researchers. This allows for a constant reflection on structural developments in research and teaching, especially in the Faculties of Education and Economics, Law and Social Sciences, and the Faculty of Philosophy.
