Overview

Most undergraduate degrees take 3 years. All programs are divided into an introductory phase (first year), an in-depth phase (second year), and an advanced phase (third year). The final phase is dedicated to writing the bachelor’s thesis. A bachelor’s degree qualifies you to pursue certain careers and apply for graduate programs.

Your choice of subject determines the degree awarded: subjects in the humanities generally award a Bachelor of Arts, subjects in the natural sciences award a Bachelor of Science, and our two interdisciplinary law programs offer a Bachelor of Laws. Teacher training programs also award a special bachelor’s degree.

A Bachelor of Arts program is structured as follows:

  • 1 major (50% or 90 achievement points)
  • 1 minor (25% or 45 achievement points)
  • general professional skills (ABK) courses (15% or 27 credit points)
  • elective courses (10% or 18 credit points).


Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Laws programs is structured as follows:

  • 1 major (75% or more)
  • general professional skills (15% or less)
  • elective courses (10% or less).


Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Laws degree programs do not contain a minor component.
