The minor Privacy Studies offers you an opportunity to engage in this interdisciplinary field, introducing you to, among others, ethical, legal, economic, technical and medical approaches to privacy.
From smartphones to cloud computing, Big Data to social media, the exploding use of information technology and its many applications will be a source of massive social, legal and economic change for years to come. In the past, privacy has primarily been addressed from a single perspective. However, we increasingly aware that privacy has many facets, and researchers and professionals worldwide are working together to address privacy from a truly interdisciplinary approach.
Privacy has both high societal and academic relevance, and the minor Privacy Studies offers students excellent career perspectives, a broad education in interdisciplinary methodology, and trains both their academic skills and research competences.
