Honours programmes offer a different form of education that allows for greater depth
DEPTH AND BREADTH
Honours students deepen their focus within their chosen discipline. At the same time, they also develop in a broader sense, to become excellent academics capable of approaching complex issues simultaneously from multiple perspectives. A Utrecht Honours programme has elements that help students to both deepen and broaden their knowledge. A part of the programme is followed within the Major and the rest is followed outside it.
Honours programmes are demand-driven: which means that students are largely free to design their own Honours programme, so that individual talents and ambitions can be optimally developed.
