For many years, Bielefeld University's Faculty of Educational Science has enjoyed an excellent reputation – both nationally and internationally – as a renowned research department, and it regularly receives top rankings in national research ratings. Research at our university is both basic and applied. In an increasingly globalizing world, the Faculty not only focuses on both individual and societal development but also analyses life perspectives from the viewpoint of educational science. The ten working groups and the research cooperations with other centres and facilities at the Bielefeld University result in an extremely wide-ranging approach towards interdisciplinary research. Two renowned progressive school projects – the Laborschule and the Oberstufen-Kolleg – are also linked closely to Bielefeld University.
More Research topics and Projects are to be found on the pages of the working groups.
