The six-semester program starts with the Leuphana Semester, which all students take together. From the second semester on, students start specializing in their major and minor. As the main discipline, the major constitutes the topic area for the university degree and stretches out over six semesters. The minor supplements this concentration with a second area of learning. In addition to the specialized education provided by the major and minor, all students participate from the second semester onward in the interdisciplinary comprehensive studies program together.
