The Electives account for 72 out of the total 240 ECTS of the Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) program. 

Electives allow students to supplement their Major and to shape their specific academic profile. Depending on their intellectual interest and future plans, students use the Electives to either deepen or broaden their studies. Academic advisors are ready to support students in making well-informed and meaningful choices regarding their Electives. Please note the regulations on the Electives as defined in the Study and Exam Regulations as well as the procedures and forms for credit recognition in the Electives as laid out on ILIAS.

Some students take courses from another LAS Major as Electives. Others choose from a wide range of courses at the University of Freiburg. The Elective section is also designed to accommodate studies abroad, further language studies, or internships:

On January 31, 2017, LAS students presented their experiences in preparing, doing, and receiving ECTS for internship projects. For more information, please see the slides below:
