The Master's degree programme History of Society is tailored for talented and motivated students. Your background may be in history, or a related field.

Students can apply if:

  • you have a university Bachelor's degree or its equivalent in history
  • you have a university Bachelor's degree or its equivalent with a background in social sciences, humanities, or a Bachelor’s degree from an university college. It is imperative that you can demonstrate that you have undertaken coursework in history (e.g. through electives or a minor).

For students who have a Dutch HBO degree, such as the educational HBO History, Social Studies (Maatschappijleer), Economics or Geography, we offer a one-year pre-master program. Other HBO degrees will be taken into consideration on an individual basis by the Exam Board. After completing the pre-master pogram, you will be eligible to start in the Master History of Society.

As of November we will start taking in applications for the academic year 2015-2016. Students with an international diploma will apply for our programme through an online application system, which will be launched in November.
