Faculty of Humanities

Located in the historic heart of Amsterdam, the Faculty of Humanities maintains intensive contacts with many partners in culture, society and business. This makes it part of a humanities hub of international stature.

The faculty covers a broad spectrum of established and pioneering teaching and research: from languages, literary studies, history and philosophy to media studies, arts, religious studies and archaeology.

Our researchers often find themselves at the forefront of necessary social debates. They analyse data, check facts and argumentation, draw lessons from the past and provide new insights. Their perspectives and methods are indispensable in finding solutions to the major issues of our time: from migration, war in Europe, diversity and dealing with the colonial past to the opportunities and dangers of artificial intelligence.
