HoMe’s four departments form the main organizational unit. They successfully perform their duties by adjusting to the size and composition of the student body.
Any student enrolled in a department’s study program, or who is an employee of that particular department, is automatically a member thereof and of the faculty, respectively.
The main tasks of the departments involve the organization of study programs, examinations, participation in admission processes and giving advice. Furthermore, the departments are responsible for the organization of scientific research, the promotion of new talent, and they are involved in appointments to the faculty. They are responsible for ensuring the quality of teaching and examining according to the requirements of the study program regulations as well as the administration of personnel and resources.
