By drawing on the disciplines of philosophy, cultural studies, development studies, communication studies, media studies, linguistics, literary studies, history, educational studies and psychology, with the International Bachelor in Humanities at Roskilde University you will explore human experiences as they have emerged as ideas and desires as well as material representations, always approaching these with a critical spirit aimed at furthering our understanding of the world.

Much of our understanding of the humanities has been shaped by the role of the nation in defining how we live and understand the world. The Global Humanities Programme explores this but also examine shifting boundaries, hybrid identities and new cultural formations that are emerging as ‘global encounters’ intensify.

The subsequent three-semesters of the bachelor phase will be based in the subject areas Communication Studies and Cultural Encounters.You can also combine these subjects with areas from the social sciences; namely International Studies or Business Studies giving you the opportunity to relate your humanities training to broader themes in international relations and business.

The initial three-semester phase of the programme consists of a number of study elements:

  • Coursework within the four dimensions of science and philosophy, text and sign, subjectivity and learning, and history and culture 
  • Three semester-long group-based projects that integrate the competences gained from the dimension courses
  • A series of 'progression' courses aimed at learning skills for project work, tools for humanistic research methodologies and the capacity to work with theory in academic writing
