Applied Theatre Studies (Drama Theatre Media) at the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen stands out due to its combination of practise and theory. The main interest is in theatrical research as well on a scientific as on a theatrical-practical basis. Thus the study is composed of theoretical seminars and lectures and of practical courses and performance projects under the baton of guest professors and assigned teachers coming from theatrical practise.

At the Institute of Applied Theatre Studies Heiner Goebbels teached and researched from 1999 until 2018 theoretical and artistic theatre practise; his main interest was in artistic/staged practise and its theoretical reflection and also the practical and theoretical study of text, language, light and sound on the stage.
