The BA degree program Regional Studies Asia/Africa


Are you interested in Asia or Africa? Are you enjoying the study of languages? Are you open for new ways of thinking and ready to critically examine your notions on extra-European cultures? Our three-year bachelor's degree program Regional Studies Asia/Africa connects two continents in one study program.


In a broad introduction, students receive theoretical and methodological knowledge, which enables them to understand scholarly thinking, deal with sources, analyze texts and write academic essays. At the same time, they are studying regional languages and focus on a particular African or Asian region of their choice. Within the bachelor's degree program, students are asked to undergo an internship and advised to go abroad for a period of time. This training paves the way for either a professional career in a global setting or for the pursue of further studies at our university or other universities worldwide.


Courses are taught in English and German. No study fees required.
