Programme profile

The first two years of your Bachelor degree are constituted by a innovative education model at Roskilde: two years of "Basic Studies": which is a broad introduction to humanities. In these two years you make important choices about the course content you follow: through your choices of courses and project topics, you decide to an extent which areas of humanities you want to focus on. From the start you can obtain a highly specialised professional profile or a more broad and basic access to humanities, where you gradually sharpen your profile in to a specialisation in your third year.

In your
third year, you study two subjects of your own choosing. It is those two specialisation subjects that you study in depth and take your bachelor degree in. You can combine two subjects in Humanities or combine a subject in Humanities with a subject in Social Sciences or natural Sciences. This gives you the possibility of a unique interdisciplinary study in humanities creating the best correlation with your professional interests and your future job possibilities.You are free to choose the two subjects your bachelor's degree should comprise. At RUC, it is possible to earn a two-subject bachelor's degree in the Humanities such as Danish and Performance Design, Physics and Philosophy, Jounalism History and Cultural Encounters, German and EU Studies, Communication Studies and Computer Science
