C 4.2-1 Introducing the Bachelor (Bologna First Cycle Degree)
Name C 4.2-1 Introducing the Bachelor (Bologna First Cycle Degree)
Description Author: Ann Katherine Isaacs

One of the central innovations in the Bologna process is the first cycle degree. Often called the ‘bachelor’ degree, the author holds that this denomination causes misunderstandings and prefers (in line with the framework of qualifications for the European higher education area) the ‘cycle’ terminology. Introducing new first cycle programmes constitutes a real challenge for higher education institutions and requires a revolution in the thinking of the academic staff (and the students). The author presents a step by step method for designing quality programmes, based on Tuning findings. New programmes should be elaborated, involving staff, students and other stakeholders, keeping in mind the aims of the first cycle: to foster the necessary competences for employment, for the continuation of studies, for citizenship and personal development.
