The University — like society as a whole — has been massively affected by the global coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the winter semester 2020/21, just like the summer semester before it, has major challenges to contend with.
But this is also an opportunity to learn: That's why LMU invites you to a series of public, virtual lectures with renowned scientists from across the university's faculties on the subject of the coronavirus. These lectures will be held in German.
In general, however, our interfaculty lectures (Ringvorlesung) that have been organized by LMU for many years now, thrive from the presence of members of the general public. As this is currently not possible as a result of the pandemic, LMU has decided to postpone the German-taught series scheduled for the winter semester 2020/21 entitled "Wahrheit und Methode: Wissenschaft heute" (“Truth and Methodology: Science Today.”) The University will announce a new timetable for this series as soon as circumstances permit.
The Studium Generale offers a combination of lectures covering general interest and interfaculty topics. These are available to students and LMU members. For students, this is a unique opportunity to broaden your knowledge beyond your specific subject area, and get inspiration for your academic field by exploring neighboring ones.
