The Bachelor of Arts programme in the special form of Joint Bachelor of Arts in Subjects X and Y combines two different programmes, of which at least one must be chosen from the subject spectrum of the Department of History and Social Sciences. Studying for a Bachelor's degree typically takes six semesters. Following subjects can be studied (German taught):
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.
