According to en.pons.com, there is no plural. But canoo.net says the plural is die Programmatiken.

1 Answer 1


Yes, a Google search currently yields 13700 results, so the plural obviously exists. A few examples from the first results:

Exzellenz und/oder Chancengleichheit der Geschlechter: Nationale Programmatiken und diskursive Praktiken an Universitäten (Deutschland und Schweiz)
Soziale Arbeit in der unternehmerischen Stadt: Kontexte, Programmatiken, Ausblicke
Erkenntnisgewinnung und Erkenntnisveränderung in neueren wissenschaftlichen Programmatiken

The plural is rare, though, as Duden notes, too. Judging from the examples found via the above web search, its use appears to be restricted to certain academic fields.
