A profile can be chosen as part of your study programme to expand the thematic range of your Master's programme.
A profile is a coherent set of courses totaling 30 study points. The courses are on a single theme that is usually not a standard part of your Master's programme. The 30 study points that comprises the profile can be done as part of the total 120 study points of your Master's programme. To incorporate a profile into a Master's programme without compromising the essential content of the programme, master's programmes have a separate set of rules for elective courses when a profile is chosen. These are listed in the programme annex of the Education and Examination Regulations. They apply only when the chosen profile is actually completed successfully by the student, otherwise the standard elective rules apply. Before choosing a profile, you are advised to discuss this with your Programme Coordinator.
Students are free to chose a profile as a part of any Master's programme, but special admissions conditions may apply. Please check the individual profile pages below.
The profiles Complex Systems and Applied Data Science can also be followed as part of the HPS programme, but this requires permission of the Board of Examiners.
