Programme profile

This programme, run at University College Freiburg, was developed in association with the University of Maastricht, is the University of Freiburg's first interdisciplinary, English-taught undergraduate programme and the first of its kind in Germany. It started in October 2012 with a pioneer group of 78 students.

This multi-disciplinary programme is characterised by three key features:

1. Generation, Dissemination and Application of Knowledge

2. Language and Culture

3. Responsibility and Leadership

Depending on their chosen major, students exit with either a BSc or a BA

Programme content

The programme consists of four study areas:

1. The Core (66 ECTS points) constitutes the intellectual identity of the programme: all students are trained intensively in general academic skills (researching and presenting study material, effective writing, dealing with numerical information, etc.). In the later semesters of the core programme, students' coursework is continuously complemented by instruction in the theory of science, knowledge and research. Finally, students follow a curriculum in responsibility and leadership.

2. The Languages part of the programme (36 ECTS) ensures that all LAS students can communicate on academic topics in excellent English and good German, and ideally acquire a good grounding in a third language.

3. The Major (90 ECTS) constitutes the students' thorough training in a specific academic field of Sciences and/or the Humanities that is, in itself, interdisciplinary.

It aims to provide sufficient depth to make admission into disciplinary MA or MSc programmes possible. Majors currently on offer are:

- Culture and History
- Life Sciences
- Governance
- Earth and Environmental Sciences

4. An Electives area of the curriculum (48 ECTS) enables students either to pursue interdisciplinary studies of their choice, engage in more practically-oriented projects or undertake specific additional training necessary for admission into their chosen MA or MSc programmes.


The university offers a wide range of Masters programmes, across many disciplines
