The Joint Bachelor of Arts consists of the studies of two different subjects/components.

The component History consists of Ancient History, Medieval History, Recent/Contemporary History and History of Technology. Modules from the aforementioned areas are added in the two elective subject areas. This gives the students the possibility to create their own subject-specific profile and to obtain specialised knowledge in a specific area of expertise.

English language skills on a B2 level (CEF) are a requirement for admission. Latin might be a requirement for admission (depending on the orientation of the programme).

Part of the programme is also an excursion of several days duration that is financially supported by the Institute.
