The Faculty of Political and Social Sciences offers three Bachelor's degree programmes, i.e. Political Sciences, Communication Sciences, and Sociology. From the first year onwards, you choose one of these three discipines.
The Bachelor's Programme of Political Sciences offers you a broad social education, in which you learn to reflect on, and from within political events. The aim is to acquire specific knowledge and competencies. You are made familiar with academic research in the field of political sciences, and you learn to consider this research critically. Elective courses and the minor in the second year allow you to personalize your curriculum. This is also the case in the third year. You either choose the Major National Politics or the Major European and World Politics.
A Master's programme is an academic programme, during which students immerse themselves in the chosen field. The acquired knowledge, skills and attitudes must be consolidated in a Master’s dissertation, an independently written academic paper. The Bachelor’s degree in Political Sciences gives direct access to three Master’s programmes: the Master of Political Sciences (with two specializations: International Politics and National Politics), the Master of EU studies and the Master of Conflict and Development Studies
In addition to the (domain) master described above, you can also choose a Master's Programme in Teaching (in Dutch: Educatieve Master). For more information, go to de educatieve master (90 sp).
