The Ludwig Uhland Institute's Bachelor program in Empirische Kulturwissenschaft (Historical and Cultural Anthropology) is an undergraduate degree program. Within the framework of a BA program, it is possible to study EKW as a major or minor subject, or as a complementary or elective subject. The BA program is the first part of a consecutive degree program: after successful completion of the undergraduate degree, it is possible to pursue graduate studies in EKW in our two-year, research-oriented Master's program.
The Bachelor program is offered only in German. For more information on the program, please click on the heading "Studium" in the horizontal German-language menu bar on the LUI homepage, and then see the heading "BA-Studiengang" listed in the left-column menu under "Studiengänge."

Applying for a Bachelor of Arts Degree
Prospective students must apply to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) program, whether they wish to major or minor in EKW. Currently, 53 students majoring and 36 minoring in EKW are accepted per year. The selection process takes into account the overall grade point average, more pertinent A-level/high school grades as well as relevant experience from a job or internship. There is no set grade point average requirement. Applications are due at the registrar's office by July 15th or January 15th for the following semester. Students usually begin in the fall/winter semester (October) but can also start in the summer semester (April).
Currently, the B.A. degree program is offered only in German. If you are a student who has attended school in a non-German-speaking country, you will have to pass a language exam before being able to apply.
