Tailor your study programme by taking a minor that suits your interests. You can either explore another subject with an interdisciplinary minor or you can choose to specialise and study a topic in greater depth.
A variety of minors are available at each UvA faculty. A minor is a cohesive set of courses worth 15 to 60 ECTS credits (most minors are 24 or 30 ECTS) that you can take in addition to your major.
Get an idea of the range of minors on offer by browsing the list below.Please note that this is a provisional list of the Minors offered in the 2019-2020 academic year and it is subject to change. The definitive list will be available from June 2019. That is also when the 2019-2020 Course Catalogue will be made available online, containing detailed information about the minors.
Choose a minor from the list of Minors to find a link to the Course Catalogue, which contains more information about the entry requirements and the application process for each minor.
If you are not currently enrolled in a Bachelor’s programme at the UvA, you will need to register as a guest student. You can find instructions on how to register as a guest student for elective courses (as part of a minor).
Non-UvA students are not required to pay tuition fees for a minor, provided they pay the statutory tuition fee at their own institution. The UvA requires confirmation of this in the form of an original Proof of Payment (Bewijs Betaald Collegegeld) from your institution. This receipt must clearly state that it has been issued for the purpose of registration at the UvA.
If you have not paid the statutory tuition fee at your institution, different rules apply. Please see the Enrolment Provisions for the University of Amsterdam or contact the Central Student Service Desk.
Once you have chosen a minor from the list of Minors, you can click on the link to the Course Catalogue to find more information on how to register. You can find this information under ‘Practical matters and information’. Be sure to check when the period for course registration opens.
