In the case of the two-subject Bachelor with a profile and a complementary subject, the main focus of the program is on the profile subject, which comprises 67% of the degree program (33% of the degree program is in a complementary subject). In principle, a profile subject can be combined with any complementary subject. However, when choosing your combination, you should pay attention to the notes on avoiding overlapping courses .
The subject-specific program components are complemented by career-relevant components. In degree programs including an academic specialty, these components are referred to as general studies (GS). In General Studies, students acquire generic competencies, e.g. scientific methods, literature search, foreign languages, writing, presentation and moderation techniques, project management, time management, and media literacy. These program components are generally free electives.
The two-subject bachelor programs are mostly chosen from the humanities, linguistics, cultural studies, art, social sciences and economics / business studies. The standard period of study (SPS) is usually 6 semesters, although some courses take 7-8 semesters to complete.
In the two-subject bachelor programs with a subject-specific profile, the profile-subject can (in theory) be combined with any complementary subject. But not all combinations make sense for everyone! Think carefully about what qualifications you would like to acquire, what you are interested in, and what you would really like to learn. In the study center responsible for the profile subject, it is advisable to seek advice on the subject of the study.
