BA Liberal Arts and Sciences Netherlands

From law in society to European language policies, from strategy and marketing to solidarity and welfare, Liberal Arts and Sciences is for those who do not want to be confined to a single discipline but prefer to study the fundamentals of a variety of disciplines and discover how these relate to each other. Students acquire a broad knowledge of the world at large (sciences, culture, and society) while at the same time developing a thorough knowledge of and familiarity with a specific area of interest. You acquire this in-depth knowledge of a particular field by choosing a Major after your first year, which is the discipline in which you specialise.
Liberal Arts and Sciences is a programme for highly talented, motivated, curious and internationally-oriented students. With your fellow-students being high-achievers like yourself, the exchange of ideas in class is intensely stimulating. You are expected to contribute your ideas and challenge the ideas of others. You will learn to master presentation skills at a professional level, to carry out research using techniques and models from a variety of academic disciplines, to write compelling papers and a high-quality thesis, and work effectively in teams – all of them skills that will prepare you adequately for your professional life.
The programme is based on the liberal education concept of the American Liberal Arts & Sciences colleges. A liberal education helps students develop a sense of social responsibility, along with strong and transferable intellectual and practical skills such as communication skills, analytical and problem-solving skills, and puts special emphasis on developing the student’s ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings.
Are you up for the challenge?
