A liberal arts and science degree programme allows you to explore multiple academic disciplines alongside your major specialization. In the Netherlands such programmes are offered mostly at University Colleges, which are small-scale institutes that are embedded in regular Dutch universities. University College Groningen is part of the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, offering liberal arts and science education with a focus on global challenges in the area of sustainability and health. In the first year you can choose to study two or three of the LAS disciplines (Sciences, Social Sciences or Humanities) before you choose your major, and you can tailor your degree programme to meet your personal learning goals.
You’ll develop not only academic research abilities, but also skills in creativity and entrepreneurship, collaboration and communication, societal engagement, and international and intercultural awareness. Skills, which are invaluable in a wide range of careers. There is growing evidence to suggest that Liberal Arts and Science graduates are in high demand for masters programmes and in the job market. UCG students participate actively in the learning community of the College. Excursions, guest lectures and student-driven activities are an integrated part of our programme and we encourage a symbiosis between our curriculum and extracurricular activities.
