Tibetan Studies

Tibetan Studies is concerned with the history, culture and language of the Tibetan language cultural area: present day Tibet within the People's Republic of China and other related areas such as Baltistan (Pakistan), Ladakh, Spiti, Lahul, Kinnaur, Sikkim (India), Bhutan and certain regions of Nepal.

At Bonn University, students have the opportunity to acquire a solid basic knowledge of the history of the Tibetan cultural sphere and also become equipped to translate and study textual sources to independently research Tibetan history, religion, politics, art and literature. 

Students are also welcome to attend the so-called 'Tibet colloquiums' hosted regularly by the department where Tibetologists present their current research projects.

This subject must be combined with a second subject.


Possible lines of work:

Intercultural communication, intercultural management, international development cooperation, peace and conflict research, international educational work (adult education, language courses, etc.), politics (policy consulting), culture (conservation/maintenance/management of global cultural heritage, cultural institutions, culture management, museums, etc.), tourism (long-distance, educational and cultural tourism), journalism, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
