Contextual Studies

Contextual Studies make up 25% of your study time. As ‘studium integrale’, they locate the Core Studies in diverse intellectual and cultural contexts.

Contextual Studies are divided into three subjects:  

  • Skills: As part of the compulsory curriculum, students are introduced to academic writing and engaged in interdisciplinary thinking with the Integrative Project.
  • Cultural and Social Sciences: Students select courses in the areas of History, Sociology, Philosophy and Psychology, which provide insights to mindsets, value systems and ways of understanding, using specific examples.
  • Foreign Language: Students are encouraged to learn new languages, choosing from a list of offered foreign language courses.
