Profile courses

Profile courses are interdisciplinary courses focusing on the labour market for Master’s degree students enrolled in the humanities degree programmes at the Faculty of Arts. Profile courses are placed on the third semester of your Master’s degree programme.

Please check your academic regulations to find out which options you have on the third semester of your Master's degree programme, if you want a profile course.
