Bachelor Courses Offered in Information Systems

The curriculum for the Bachelor of Arts in Information Systems consists of required courses, elective courses and independent work. The curriculum is bilingual (German and French). Many courses, particularly in the areas of business administration and economics, are offered in both German and French, and students can choose the language of instruction. Courses offered by the Department of Informatics are usually given in only one language, but the exams for these courses can be taken in both German and French, independent of the language of instruction of the course.
