Dear students,
welcome back to our winter semester 2021/2022!

For our Department "Cultural and Religious History of South Asia (Classical Indology)" we're planning our winter semester to take place face-to-face.

You can find our winter semester courses in Moodle3
Please contact the teacher of the course you wish to take directly to receive the Moodle course password. More information regarding the exact execution of courses will be made available on Moodle.

Curses will begin on Monday, October 18th.
Since it is very likely that teaching will return to "in classroom teaching" for the winter semester, please take care that you avoid overlap of the courses you are taking.

For questions regarding your course of studies or questions regarding our online courses, please contact:
