In 2018, for the fifth year in a row, the highly regarded Keuzegids Masters (a Dutch ranking of Master’s programmes) ranked Utrecht University’s Sociology and Social Research programme as a Top Rated Master's, indicating consistently high scores across different rating categories.
Our Master’s programme Sociology and Social Research is assessed as ‘Good’ (highest qualification awarded) by The Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders, NVAO in their last evaluation (December 2015). The NVAO is tasked by the Dutch and Flemish governments as an independent accreditation organisation for an expert and objective assessment of the quality of higher education in the Netherlands and Flanders.
Sociology in Utrecht is rated very highly in the Quality Assurance Netherlands Universities (QANU, 2013/2014). The QANU review committee rewarded our Sociology Department’s dimensions of quality, productivity, relevance, and viability as the best from among the seven programmes that were involved in this research visitation.
