Humanities core curriculum
The Humanities core curriculum is part of the study programme for students who started a Bachelor’s degree programme at the Faculty of Arts between September 2011 and September 2018 and consists of three courses of 5 EC each:
Course 1: philosophical reflection
Course 1 will no longer be taught as part of the core curriculum in 2020-2021, but as part of your degree programme.
- Philosophical Reflection (for IBC students)
- Culture through Philosophy (for ACS students)
Course 2: knowledge and insight in the humanities
There are four courses from which you can choose. These courses are given in the first semester.
- LET-ACWB108 - European Culture (not for ACS students)
- LET-ETCENB109 - British Culture and History
- LET-KGB701 - Glory of the Renaissance and Baroque in Italy and the Netherlands
- LET-CIWB157-IBC - Language and Communication (not for IBC students)
- You can also choose the Dutch core curriculum courses
Course 3: humanities and society
Course 3 will no longer be taught as part of the core curriculum in 2020-2021. Students who have not yet passed this course, have to follow the Academia and Society course from one of the 11 thematic minors.
Please note: all Academia and Society courses take place in period 2.
If you go abroad in the first semester, register for the online course Study Abroad: Academia and Society (LET-LETMI-RF12). You will follow this online course during your stay abroad. You can also submit a request to the Examination Board to replace this course with a course you take during your study abroad. The content of this course must meet the objectives of the Humanities and Society course as well as possible: orientation on the societal role of your studies and the professional / future perspective, to be assessed by the Examination Board.
If you follow the teacher-training-minor in the first semester, you also have to register for the Academia and Society course from one of the 11 thematic minors.
