In order to accommodate candidates from various backgrounds, and depending on each candidate’s previous studies, the master’s degree in Computing in the Humanities is offered in three distinctly fitted curricular tracks.

Track 1: Candidates holding a bachelor’s degree without Applied Computer Science elements

 

The degree track under the heading “Consecutively interdisciplinary, on the basis of a bachelor’s degree without Applied Computer Science elements” is aimed at students with little or no previous knowledge of Computer Science and Applied Computer Science.

Modules in Track 1
A1 Computer Science and Applied Computer Science45 ECTS-Points
A2 Computing in the Humanities27 ECTS-Points
A3 Seminars und Projects18 ECTS-Points
A4 Master's Thesis30 ECTS-Points

 

Track 2: Candidates holding a bachelor’s degree including a minor in Applied Computer Science (30 ECTS-Points)
