The Joint Bachelor of Arts is a first academic degree with professional qualification. The combination of two subjects ensures on the one hand a unique broadness and variety within the basic education, which leads into a disciplinary specialization in a following master-program. On the other hand, it provides a greater flexibility as an one-subject-program by giving graduates the opportunity, to make their subject choice for the master-program after gaining scientific knowledge in two disciplines.

In addition, the program allows students an early introduction into interdisciplinary questions. The educational objectives in this field of study are a basic introduction to rational and scientific thinking, argumentation and working on the basis of a solid scientific training in two disciplines. An optional area provides also profession-relevant key competencies and interdisciplinary insights.
