The Chair of Life Sciences and Society follows an inter- and transdisciplinary approach to science and society. It offers lectures, seminars, and research courses where students are provided conceptual tools for understanding the interrelationships between science and wider publics, and for designing prototype and real-life participation formats through public engagement and science communication methods. Courses are generally delivered in English, however, the Research Course / Forschungspraktikum and all writing assingments can be done in German.

The Chair combines science and technology studies (STS) and science communication studies (SCS) with environmental studies, history and philosophy of science, arts, museum and curatorial studies, and other related fields. Offerings are also co-taught, with scientists across the Biozentrum, and including additional expertise from museum professionals, artists and designers, science communicators and many others.
