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 the scientific way of thinking and the scientific methods, in which you learn to formulate and solve scientific problems. At the same time, you work with research-based project work, in close contact with scientists. In these two years you make important choices about the course content you follow: through your choices of modules and project topics, you decide to an extent which areas of Natural Science, you want to focus on. From the start, you can obtain a highly specialised professional profile or a more broad and basic access to Natural Science, 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 Natural science or combine a subject in Natural science with a subject in Social Sciences or Humanities. This gives you the possibility of a unique interdisciplinary study in natural science creating the best correlation with your professional interests and your future job possibilities.

You are free to choose the two subjects comprised in your degree. At RUC, it is possible to earn a two-subject bachelor's degree in Biology and Chemistry, Medical Biology and Mathematics, Molecular Biology and Computer Science, Physics and Philosophy, Environmental Biology and Geography, Informatics and Technological and Socio-Economic Planning, Health Promotion and Health Strategies and Journalism and many more not listed here. You may combine your undergraduate programme in the Natural Sciences to adapt it to your personal strengths and interests,
