You and the Faculty

The Faculty of Humanities provides a wide range of Bachelor’s and (research) Master’s degrees, as well as an interdisciplinary Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Politics & Economics (PPE).

All education in the Faculty of Humanities is personal: students work in small groups, allowing a lot of interaction with fellow students and teachers. Within the degree programmes there is plenty space for individual choice and development, and students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a societal context. Academic challenges, active teaching methods and high-quality supervision are important elements of an education in the faculty, with current world issues and the major scientific questions playing an important role.
