However, trained nurses can also work with informing about general health, with education and many other things. A nurse’s job is a very versatile one, where both your professional knowledge and personal qualities are brought to bear.

During the programme in Language, Literature & Media, you acquire knowledge about language structures and the importance of language for a country’s cultural identity. Just as language is of great importance for a people’s identity, literature and media also play an important role in how news, debate and culture are communicated.

These are some of the questions the bachelor’s degree programme in Theology deals with. As a student of Theology, you will learn about the origin, history and contemporary development of Christianity.
