Bachelor in Sciences and Humanities
One of UFABC’s two entry-level programs, the curriculum of the Bachelor in Sciences and Humanities is personalized in a way that allows students to exert control over their own academic career, according to their aspirations and calling. Only fewer than 40% of courses are required, and these interact through their interdisciplinary nature, combining more than one dimension in their content. The rest are elective courses that can be chosen from those offered in the bachelor or teaching programs the student is interested in, and they are not imposed with the need for prerequisites to enroll in said courses. The structure of the program considers the fact that Sciences, Humanities and other means to express knowledge are instruments designed to build thinking individuals. Students are presented with content from the Natural Sciences, the Formal Sciences, Social Sciences and Philosophy. This model provides students with flexibility in the way they manage their academic careers. They can choose to graduate from the BC&H alone, in which case over 60% of earned credits come from elective courses; they can choose also to graduate from one or more specific programs – as do most of our students – and they earn a diploma for each completed program, including the BC&H.
