Take a minor as part of your Bachelor’s programme

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.

Why choose a minor?

  • To expand your breadth of knowledge by choosing an interdisciplinary minor or a minor in a different field.
  • To increase your depth of knowledge by choosing a specialised minor in your field.
  • To prepare for the process of choosing a Master’s programme.
  • To start thinking about your options after the Bachelor’s programme.

Minors on offer

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.
