During the first 1½ years, you get an interdisciplinary introduction to key theories and methods within the Humanities field and you acquire knowledge of the subjects Linguistic Science, Literary Analysis, Journalism and Modern Media. In addition, you take courses in History, Cultural Studies, Educational Theory and Psychology.

During the last 1½ years, you specialise in two parallel Bachelor subjects. One subject must be within the Humanities field. 
You choose the other subject from largely all RU Bachelor subjects and preferably across the main areas, namely the Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences.
