Mono and combi bachelor’s degrees

Mono bachelor

The structure of BA and MA degree programs depends on the subject or combination of subjects and differs at every university. Around half of Freie Universität’s BA programs are mono bachelor's degrees. In addition to the major subject (Kernfach) one has applied for, some programs also require their students to take classes in so-called related areas or related modules (affine Bereiche) that, unlike the minor subjects (Modulangebote) offered for the combination bachelor’s programs, do not require an additional application. Mono and combination bachelors both include a General Professional Skills courses worth 30 credit points (CP) that also do not require an additional application or registration.

Combi bachelor

The other half of FU BA programs are combi bachelor's degrees. They consist of a major subject (Kernfach, usually 90 CP) and one or two minor subjects (Modulangebote: one 60-CP or two 30-CP). The minor subjects can be chosen out of a broad spectrum (unless the program's study regulations only allow certain combinations). Applicaton and admission for the major and minor subjects take place separately, but you will be enrolled for them simultaneously.

When choosing your minor subjects, please keep in mind that they are only a supplement to your major subject meant to broaden your skill set, not the main focus of your studies. This can be relevant for future Master’s applications that often times require a certain amount of CP in certain subjects.

If you choose a 90-30-30-CP subject combination, the two minor subjects are just additional qualifications, you cannot pursue a Master's degree in those subjects.
