B.A. Studium Indivduale: Jobs and Career

The Studium Individuale is designed to help students cultivate their personal interests and strengths, and to prepare them for a civic and professional engagement with the world’s contemporary problems. By developing their own lines of inquiry and learning, students shape their education and lay the groundwork for their future professional career.

Careers in Contemporary Society

A key rationale of liberal education programs such as the Studium Individuale is to provide students with the skills, knowledge and professional disposition that are needed for a variety of careers in contemporary society. There is a clear demand for mature, self-reliant and self-motivated graduates, who can be trusted to learn quickly and who know how to make the best use of their own faculties. It is these qualities that the Studium Individuale brings out of its students. Studying the Studium Individuale at Leuphana College thereby prepares students for sustainable, socially relevant and personally rewarding careers.

Depending on the choices that you make over the course of your studies and the specific profile that you develop, graduating from the Studium Individuale will enable you to continue your studies with a range of M.A. or M.Sc. programs. You may find innovative, problem-oriented and interdisciplinary Master programs particularly attractive and attainable. You will be offered substantive advice from faculty as to which programs might be desirable in view of your personal interests, goals and academic profile.

With or without a subsequent M.A. degree, the liberal education that is offered to you through the Studium Individuale opens up a wide range of possible career paths. Businesses, the public and non-profit sector, and universities alike are expressing a growing demand for self-reliant, personally engaged, and versatile graduates who are trained in analytical thinking and capable of acquiring and managing knowledge and skills. Among the sectors and types of organizations that regularly employ and work with graduates of liberal education programs are national or international NGOs; administrations, parliaments and political organizations; diplomacy and international organizations; consultancies, think tanks and research institutions; media and journalism; cultural institutions, museums and the arts, just as universities and research foundations.

In which field and position you will have your first job will significantly depend on your study choices and achievements, extra-curricular initiatives and work experiences, and generally the individual profile you build at Leuphana. With its emphasis on self-guided learning and acting and its espousal of creative problem-solving, the Studium Individuale equally encourages and prepares for entrepreneurial initiatives. Graduates of the Studium Individuale are ideally situated to create their own positions, by helping others identify and solve complex problems. Whatever your choices, the Studium Individuale will provide you with a solid foundation for your professional journey.
