Computer science is the science of systematic information processing, particularly automatic processing with the help of computers. The core concept of computer science is the algorithm, a procedure for solving a class of problems that can be described in formal terms and reproduced mechanically. As a foundational discipline and an applied science, computer science influences and has had an impact on the recent development of almost all domains of academia and society. A course of study in computer science is thus suitable for students interested in the humanities and the social sciences as well as for those interested in mathematics and the natural sciences. The most important subdisciplines of computer science are:
- Theoretical Computer Science: Central questions include the description and study of computers and formal languages as well as the complexity of calculations.
- Practical Computer Science: Objects of study include methods of writing programs and concrete development environments with program translators, information systems, and simulators.
- Applied Computer Science: This subdiscipline investigates possibilities for the automatization of activities in various domains. The methods applied for the development of program systems are taken primarily from engineering.
- Computer Science and Society: This subdiscipline studies the effects of the use of information technology on society.


Please note:
In the summer semester 2020 there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.

Central Student Advising Office


The central student advisory service - the Central Student Advising Office (ZSB) provides information and advice on all questions that may arise prior to, at the beginning of, and during a course of study. The Student Service Center – Center for Teacher Education [de] offers a special academic advising for current and prospective students of teaching degree programs. If you are seeking subject-specific advice in addition to this, you can also contact the respective subject academic advisor
