General Introduction

Jacobs University offers study programs according to the regulations of the European Higher Education Area. All study programs are structured along the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which facilitates credit transfer between academic institutions. The three-year undergraduate program involves six semesters of study with a total of 180 ECTS credits. The curricular structure follows an innovative and student-centered modularization scheme – the 3C Model – which groups the disciplinary content of the three study years according to overarching themes:

The first study year is characterized by a broad offer in disciplinary and interdisciplinary education. Students select three CHOICE modules from a variety of study programs.

In the second year, students take three in-depth, discipline-specific CORE modules. One CORE module can also be taken from a second, complementary discipline, which allows students to incorporate a minor study track into their undergraduate education.

In the fifth semester, the World Track provides students either with an extended internship or a study abroad opportunity at a partner university. Students may also opt to stay on campus and continue their undergraduate education, where they select specialization courses within their study program and pursue a project/research module including the Bachelor thesis.
