The LAS program offers interdisciplinary training that allows for individual emphases. The Core (66 ECTS) includes reflection on knowledge and sciences – the key to interdisciplinary education and training –, a curriculum on Responsibility and Leadership, and general academic skills training. In the Electives (72 ECTS), students can choose from a variety of options and courses as well as undertake study projects of their own. The Major (102 ECTS) constitutes the students’ training in a specific academic field. LAS offers four Majors: (1) Earth and Environmental Sciences, (2) Life Sciences, (3) Governance, (4) Culture and History. LAS teaches students intellectual flexibility across disciplines and enables them to apply the acquired skills to complex academic and practical questions. It prepares them for careers in international environments that demand fast and efficient adaptation to varying and complex challenges on a day to day basis. Finally, students will learn how to self-responsibly and self-confidently continue to advance their intellectual development after graduation, for and beyond their careers.
Poursuite d'études et carrière
Many LAS graduates pursue further academic training in Master and PhD programs. Other graduates engage themselves in intern- and traineeships in NGOs and Think Tanks, cultural organizations, or in businesses and social entrepreneurships. Concerning career paths outside academia, surveys and research show a clear demand for internationally oriented graduates trained in interdisciplinary thought and action – in the US, Germany, and elsewhere: LAS students are prepared for responsibilities and careers in international environments that demand fast and efficient adaptation to varying and complex challenges on a day to day basis. Universities, research and consulting institutions, think tanks, international organizations, politics and administration, media, as well as international firms are all potential employers. So, while career paths for LAS graduates are not as clear-cut as they are for those who study Medicine or Law, studying LAS in Freiburg will provide you with many prerequisites necessary for your specific career goals. The most important ingredient, however, is you: LAS gives you the opportunity to shape your own education. It also challenges you to use that opportunity to set out towards career goals that, ultimately, only you yourself can define.
