Existential subjects

Existential subjects explore different aspects of human life and interaction. We aim for the students to reflect on and gain knowledge of the existential wonders of life. The list of existential subjects  is dynamic and updated each semester.

elective subjects

Elective subjects often have a practical, physical or creative scope. You may choose subjects that relate to your main subject or you can go down completely new paths exploring new talents. The list of elective subjects is dynamic and updated each semester.
