The Faculty of Humanities offers high-quality education and research in a wide range of subject areas. They include modern languages, literature, linguistics, communication, media, musicology, art, culture, gender, history, philosophy and religion.
With more than 20 Bachelor's programmes (all in Dutch) and almost 50 Master's programmes (of which 20 are taught in English), the Faculty offers programmes covering the full range of the Humanities' scope. The Faculty welcomes ambitious and talented national and international students and provides them with every opportunity to fully develop themselves into leading academics
Within Study Programmes, the Faculty strives for an interdisciplinary approach, not only within interdisciplinary programmes such as Liberal Arts and Sciences and Language and Culture Studies, but also within the more disciplinary programmes. Keeping a close relationship between education and research is another key issue. Right from the start, students meet with prominent lecturers and researchers. Also, each of the twelve Research Masters of the Faculty of Humanities is congruent with one of the Faculty’s Research Programmes.
The University expects students to be active, involved and ambitious in order for them to achieve the best results. To stimulate this even further, Utrecht University has several prizes and programmes on offer for outstanding students.
