College of Social Sciences

The College of Social Sciences offers six academic Bachelor's programmes in the field of the social sciences, specifically: Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, Social Geography and Planning (starting September 2009) and the broadly-oriented programme in Behaviour and Society.

The College also provides preparatory programmes to facilitate accelerated admission to Master's programmes for students without a Bachelor's degree in a relevant social sciences field. Separate minors (30 ECTS credits) are offered within each of the disciplines listed above, along with minors in International Development Studies, Conflict Studies and Asia Studies. Finally, the College coordinates a series of English-language courses for both exchange students and UvA students.
