Choosing a Minor

Choosing a minor allows you to tailor your studies to your interests and future aspirations. Explore our wide range of options and be inspired by the stories of UvA students, the career coach, and helpful tips.

Tips for choosing a minor
  • Tip 1: Think outside the box

    A minor doesn't have to be related to your current studies. Maybe you're curious about another topic or field. This is a great opportunity to try a course from a different faculty.
  • Tip 2: Prepare for future studies or career options

    Think about which Master's programme or career you're interested in. A minor could help you meet admissions requirements or prepare you for your future job.
  • Tip 3: Delve deeper into your favourite subjects

    This is your chance to focus more on the topics you're really interested in within your Bachelor's programme and become an expert in those areas.
