Bachelor's degrees from the Faculty of Arts consist of two components: a Major and a Minor. During your Major you follow courses of the curriculum of your degree programme. A Minor is a coherent set of courses that support you in your next career step: the choice of a specific Master’s degree programme or access to the labour market. A Minor comprises 30 ECTS. You will follow a Minor in the first semester of your third year (semester 5).
To help students choose a Minor, the Faculty of Arts organizes two Information Fairs about the different Minors each year. More information about the information events and a complete overview of the Minor-information is available to UG students on Student Portal (login required).

To enrol for a Minor (even when you need to do part of a Minor), please go to
Progress > “enrolling” > “Minors” > “Arts” > and choose the Minor you would like to do. The capacity for Minors can be limited.
