New degree programmes: Apply now!

What are your plans now that you've graduated from high school? Have you decided whether to pursue vocational training or a university education? And what about after your bachelor's degree: will you start working right away, or do you plan to get your master's degree first? Right now, many young people are thinking about questions just like these. And with its wide range of attractive degree programmes, the University of Bayreuth is a good place to turn to for answers. In 2019, the broad spectrum of currently around 150 study programmes will be expanded by seven study programmes: two new Bachelor's and four new Master's programmes as well as a continuing education Master's programme.

The University of Bayreuth, located in northern Bavaria, has always reacted to social changes and the related demands on science and business by creating innovative, interdisciplinary programmes. With around 13,500 students, the University of Bayreuth is a comfortable size, and its students and instructors get to know each other more quickly thanks to the University's unique campus. This encourages interdisciplinary thinking and a cooperative atmosphere, reflected in a range of interdisciplinary degree programmes such as the new bachelor's programme Environment & Resource Technology, the Master's programme in Sports Technology or the supplementary programme in Environmental Law.

Overview of new degree programmes:

Bachelor's Programmes

​German-French Bachelor of Laws in Economics and Institutions, Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) and Licence Mention DroitHide

With the German-French law bachelor's programme "Economics and Institutions", lasting for six semesters, a small, exclusive circle of students acquire a double degree which is recognised in Germany and France: a "Bachelor of Laws" (LL.B.) from the University of Bayreuth and a "Licence Mention Droit" from the University of Bordeaux Montaigne.  The course covers German and French law as well as the fundamentals of economics.  The course, which is sponsored by the Franco-German University, offers graduates excellent career prospects in German, French, and international organizations and companies.

Profile:

​Electrical Engineering and Information System Technology (B.Sc.)Hide

The degree programme Electrical Engineering and Information System Technology B.Sc. combines competences in computer science with those in engineering science and is thus aimed, primarily, at all those who aspire to an interdisciplinary education at the interface of hardware and software. Students gain insights into both the scientific and simultaneously the practical development of innovative technical solutions in the field of electrical engineering and information technology. Graduates of this programme have a sound scientific basis in the fields of mathematics, natural sciences, engineering and computer science - and are thus able to understand phenomena and problems that arise in digitisation, as well as its basic principles. The course qualifies students for professional activities in the growth area of complex, networked systems or the Internet of Things, e.g. in the electronics and telecommunications industry, in energy service providers and in the development of energy system components, in the automotive industry, in manufacturing industry and in research institutes.

Master's Programmes

Global History (M.A.)Hide

Students of the English-language Master's programme Global History (M.A.) are able to present complex global issues in a structured and differentiated way in their professional or academic environment. They have special knowledge of the history of Africa, Europe, or America and the Atlantic world. Graduates can work in an interdisciplinary fashion, using various scientific methods, on factual questions of globalization, and take on leading roles in interdisciplinary teams thanks to their expertise. In addition to internationally active companies, associations and research institutes, there are opportunities to qualify into regional labour markets, especially since the degree programme is combined with parts and modules from the likewise new degree programme 'History in Science and Practice' (see below). Global historical issues are also becoming increasingly important in museum and exhibition work, and in journalism.

Profile:

  • Requirements: BA degree in history from the University of Bayreuth or equivalent (average grade "good").
  • Language skills: English B2, German A1.
  • Language of Instruction: English
  • Admission Restrictions: None
  • Programme Coordinators: Prof. Dr. Joël Glasman (Tel.: +49 921 / 55-4640) and Prof. Dr. Kristin Skottki (Tel.: +49 921 / 55-4165
  • Start of Studies: Winter Semester 2019/20

History in Academia and Practice (M.A.)Hide

The Master's programme History in Academia and Practice M.A. offers alternatively the field of study 'Public History' or the choice of a scientific focus.  The choice between a practice-oriented degree in 'History and Public Spheres' and a more subject-specific focus does not have to be made at the beginning of the programme, but can be decided as late as by third semester.  On the one hand, the programme focuses on occupational fields that are already central to graduates of historical programmes, such as museums, exhibitions or archives.  In addition, the programme will prepare students for occupational fields that are still marginal in academic education or are not considered at all, such as tourism or digital media.

Profile:

Scientific Computing (M.Sc.)Hide

The Master's programme Scientific Computing M.Sc. combines mathematical modelling with the efficient numerical solving of complex problems in science, technology and economics. The research and development of products today would be unthinkable without numerical simulation on computers. The specific applications of scientific computing range from crash tests to electromagnetic compatibility, optimization of fuel cells, calculating prices of financial derivatives, to the simulation of biological processes. With the new international mathematics course, the University of Bayreuth is equipping particularly capable students for future challenges in the field of numerical simulation.

Profile:

Opera and Performance (M.A.)Hide

The Master's Degree in Opera and Performance M.A. concentrates on opera as a multimedia Gesamtkunstwerk, and as such is unique in the German-speaking world as a scientifically oriented course of study. The new Master's programme follows on consecutively from the two relevant Bayreuth B.A. programmes 'Music Theatre Studies' and 'Theatre and Media', but differs from the existing Master's programme 'Music and Performance' in its focus.  The Master's programme 'Opera and Performance' prepares both students who aspire to work in research and those who wish to qualify scientifically for future tasks in a demanding career in cultural management. Cooperation partners of the programme are theatres and opera houses (Staatstheater Nürnberg, Theater Coburg, Semperoper Dresden, Oper Dortmund, Oper Halle) and universities with a focus on opera research (Vienna, Bologna, Bern, Poznań, Southampton).

Profile:

  • Requirements: University degree in 'Music Theatre Studies' and 'Theatre and Media' at the University of Bayreuth or an equivalent degree (possibly involving aptitude testing)
  • Language skills: German B2
  • Languages of Instruction: German
  • Admission Restrictions: None
  • Programme Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Anno Mungen, Tel.: +49 9228 / 99605-10
  • Start of Studies: Winter Semester 2019/2020
  • Flyer (PDF) (in German)
