What is the structure of a bachelor’s study program?

The structure of BA study programs differs depending on the subject or the chosen combination of subjects, respectively. Until your graduation, you have to acquire 180 credit points (CP) in total. The distribution of these points depends on the study model of your program.

Separate Modules are part of a Combination Bachelor's. Someone who pursues a Combination BA has a core subject of 90 credit points and, in addition to that, a separate module of 60 CP or two smaller separate modules of 30CP each.

Related areas or related modules can be part of a mono-bachelor. They refer to modules of other subjects that are usually related content-wise to your core subject and are an addition to your academic profile. If you pursue a mono-bachelor, look at your study and examination regulations to see whether related modules are required. The video underneath will show you how to register for them.

A 30CP component for professional training is an obligatory part of all BA study programs; there are two versions:

General professional skills courses (ABV)

The study area general professional skills (ABV) includes a mandatory internship and modules from the following skill areas. Your subject’s study and examination regulations will tell you which modules you can take.

ABV skill areas

  • (modern) foreign languages
  • information and media skills
  • gender and diversity awareness
  • organization and management
  • communication skills
  • additional subject-related qualifications
  • sustainable development
  • research orientation
  • professional internship

Teaching-related professional courses (LBW)

Teaching-related professional courses (LBW) introduce students to elementary questions in the field of education. Students are supposed to get to know school as a professional place and learn how to reflect on their practical experiences guided by the theoretical knowledge they have acquired at university.

See study and examination regulations LBW.

Students pursuing a BA degree program whose subject combination would make them eligible for a Master of Education should take the LBW module if they want to keep the Master of Education as a possible future option. All others have to take the ABV module.
