What is the Honours College FSW?

The Honours College FSW provides a supplementary programme for highly motivated students who want to take on an extra challenge in addition to their regular degree programme. As an Honours College student, you sample a wide range of academic disciplines and meet students from other degree programmes.

Three Honours tracks

The Honours College FSW focuses on the interaction between science and society. There are three tracks:

  • Science and Society Track
    30 EC interdisciplinary programme for deepening and broadening knowledge, with a community of its own;

  • Individual Track
    30 EC individual, tailor-made programme, including at least one interdisciplinary Honours Class;

  • Double Bachelor+ Track
    Combination of two complete Bachelor programmes, supplemented by an interdisciplinary Honours Class.


Each of these tracks provides students with a wealth of opportunities to gather new insights and expand their knowledge about important questions in society and about research into these questions. You will also develop your skills in debating, academic writing, presenting, collaborating, thinking analytically, and carrying out research. And you do all this together with students from the various degree programmes at FSW and the other faculties.
