Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Department of Cultural History and Theory

Student Council

The Student Council Initiative Cultural History and Theory [FSI Kulturwissenschaft] is a point of contact for all questions related to studying at the Department of Cultural History and Theory. We represent the Student Council on the level of the Department and on the level of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and we plan and support events and projects organised by students for students.

Who we are

The Student Council Initiative [Fachschaftsinitiative] (FSI) is an independent association of students, who want to advocate for the interests of the student body and student council. The council is not elected, everyone can join.

We work without a fixed hierarchy and we try to distribute all outstanding tasks as evenly as possible. To make our work less complicated, we have split up into different areas of responsibility: communication, events and university-politics/committee work.

For more information please see Kontakte.
