Why study a Bachelor of Arts program at the School of Humanities of the University of Mannheim? 

The examination regulations are the most important document regarding your program. They list your rights and obligations as a student and constitute the legal basis of your studies. Therefore, it is crucial that you have read them and refer to them in case of questions.

Examination regulations

Here, we have compiled many useful tips for you regarding your program: Which courses should I attend at the beginning of my studies? Is there an exemplary degree plan? How do lectures and seminars build on each other? Which courses are only offered on an annual basis? Who are my contact persons? 

  • Program handbook

    Currently there are no files available.

  • The program includes a mandatory internship of six weeks (full-time 35 hours/week or part time with a total of at least 210 hours). We recommend that you also complete a longer internship in a potential professional field during your studies - either in Germany or abroad. We are happy to help you find a suitable internship. 

    What do I have to keep in mind with regard to the bachelor's thesis and the oral examination at the end of my studies? How can I find an examiner and a topic? How does the registration process for the final examinations and the thesis work?

    Information on the final module

    Studying abroad always helps you grow personally and professionally. And there is no better place to learn a foreign language than the country where the language is spoken. Don’t miss this great opportunity! Ideally you should plan your semester abroad for the fifth semester; however, a stay abroad during the spring semester (fourth or sixth semester) is also possible. We will help you plan your stay abroad and will be happy to advise you - whether you plan a semester abroad or an internship abroad.
