Programme Honours College FSW

Science & Society Track

In the Science and Society track we look at scientific research and its influence on society. Important societal questions demand an interdisciplinary approach, so we invite scholars and scientists from various disciplines to discuss their research and share their knowledge of their field.


Individual Track

In the Individual Track the emphasis lies on deepening your knowledge within your own discipline and/or broadening your knowledge by taking courses from outside that discipline. What strikes you as a good preparation for your later mission in your professional life?


Double Bachelor+ Track

During or at the end of your first year at university, you may decide to take a second Bachelor alongside your original programme. In this case, you may be eligible to take an Honours Certificate in the Double Bachelor+ Track. You do, however, have to meet certain conditions.
