B.A. History – TübAix

Der Studiengang TübAix zielt darauf ab, deutschsprachigen und französischsprachigen Studierenden einen binationalen Zugang zu Geschichtswissenschaften zu bieten.

  • French, German
  • Binational Bachelor’s Degree/BA Double Degree
  • Cooperation with Aix-Marseille University

The TübAix Bachelor's program aims at introducing students from Germany (or Germans peaking countries) and France (or French speaking countries) to a binational approach to historical studies. Special emphasis lies on the specific theoretical and methodological approaches of academic research in both France and Germany, thus familiarizing the students with both university systems.

The fields of study include all central epochs of European history as well as specializations specific to each university: Tübingen offers the study of North American and Eastern European history and Aix-en-Provence focuses on the African and Middle Eastern areas. Regional studies are included in the programs of both universities, as well as seminars to auxiliary sciences of history.

The students also select a minor, such as geography, French or German literature, history of art, etc. The intercultural dimension is at the heart of the program, as French- and German-speaking students complete their studies side by side and are able to assist each other as they work in tandem.
