The Faculty of Humanities offers a wide range of courses in the field of broad Humanities and Social Sciences to exchange students. All the courses are part of FHS degree study programmes that are designed to put a strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity.
Echange students study together with local students.
It is possible to take courses also outside the FHS, your host faculty, but not more than 49 % in total (e.g. if you would like to take three courses at the Faculty of Social Sciences, you have to take at least four courses provided by the Faculty of Humanities regardless of the overall number of ECTS credits).
You may choose both BA ("YB" courses codes) and MA ("YM" codes) courses across different study programmes and departments at the Faculty of Humanities, unless there are specific entry restrictions and requirements for the respective courses.
If you are nominated via the Erasmus Agreement with our German and French Philosophy Study programme, you are expected to select some of your course from the course offerings of this study programme. These courses are held in German and are listed with the "YMFPR" course codes.
The offer for the next academic year (semester) will be a modification of the current academic year course offerings. Some of the current courses might not be offered any longer, while some new courses will be introduced to provide a reasonable number of courses in the field of broad Humanities and Social Sciences.
Most of your courses must be with the Faculty of Humanities, your host CU faculty. Thus you can also choose courses outside the Faculty of Humanities, but not more than 49 % of the overall number of courses in your study plan (e.g. if you would like to take three courses at the Faculty of Social Sciences, you have to take at least four courses provided by the Faculty of Humanities regardless of the overall number of ECTS credits).
You may choose both BA and MA FHS courses, unless there are specific entry restrictions and requirements for the respective courses. You may differentiate between BA and MA courses by viewing their course codes. BA courses are listed with YB...codes, while MA courses are with YM.....codes.
MA students can take BA courses (and vice-versa) provided that it is accepted by their home universities.
Students nominated via the IIA with our German and French Philosophy Study programme are expected to select some of their course from the course offerings of this study programme ("YMFPR" course codes).
If interested in the YBAU coded (UPCES) / YBAC coded (CET) courses held in cooperation with our partner institutions, you may take up to 2 UPCES / CET courses per semester in total together with some regular FHS courses.
It is not possible to enroll "YBAC" courses, if you come just for a semester.
For detailed information visit the UPCES / CET Rules of Enrolment section.
You may fill the courses provided by another CU Faculty in your Learning Agreement together with the FHS courses, however please note that the enrolment in these courses cannot be guaranteed either by us or course instructors in advance. Thus we recommend to consider some backup choices based on the FHS course offerings.
Students check the availability of those courses during the add/drop period to courses in CU Student information system at the beginning of the semester.
The usual semester workload is 30 ECTS credits. Depending on the requirements of students´ home university, it might be less. However, please note that we require a minimum workload of 20 ECTS credits per semester. MA students working on their MA thesis during their exchange may finally take a minimum workload of 15 ECTS credits per semester if approved by their home universities.
Changes to your Learning Agreement are possible during the add/drop period to courses depending on the up-to-date course offerings and timetable.
