The Faculty of Humanities offers a number of minors. A minor is comprised of a coherent package of related courses that make up 30 study points in total. These Minor Programmes are intended to complement the depth and breadth of learning in your chosen field of study. In addition, most Bachelor's programmes have an additional 30 credit ‘option’ (also called the minorrruimte) that you can fill in a number of ways, for example with a study abroad, an internship, electives or (educational) minor.
Are you interested in becoming a teacher? You might want to consider our ‘Education Minor’.
You can also choose to follow a single elective course with us of 6 credits or even create your own combination of courses to make up your own 30 credit minor. These will be conditional on the approval of the VU Examination Board or your own University. VU students can register for these under ‘extra-curricular training’ or under ‘bijvakker’ if you are not a VU home student.
