The BA program at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is usually composed of two subjects. These may be two subjects offered at the Faculty or one Faculty subject and one non-Faculty subject (see bottom of the page, Ausserfakultäre Master Studienfächer).
Each of the subjects is worth 75 credit points. An additional 30 credits must be earned in the so-called free electives, in which students take individually selectable courses to deepen their fields of study, to gain insights into other fields of study, or to acquire language skills.
As an alternative to a Bachelor's degree with two fields of study, students can take the Bachelor's Degree Program in Eastern European Studies at the department for 150 credit points. This is offered by the Slavic Department together with the Chair of Eastern European History of the Department of History and also includes a free elective (30 credit points).
