Over onsUniversity College GroningenEducationMajor Specialisations


At University College Groningen, you will have the chance to study three majors: Sciences, Social Sciences or Humanities. Within each major, major specialisations allow students to combine different academic disciplines or perspectives into a specific Bachelor programme that fits their interests and future plans. Thus, major specialisations are tailored programmes that fit the interest and the prospective Master choices of the major students. See the menu to the left for the examples of possible major specialisations, i.e. Physics of Energy, Health and Life Sciences, PPE/IB/IL, BBC, Media, History and Journalism, Arts, Culture Studies and Philosophy. Please note that alternative specialisations within majors are possible and can be created by the students to fit their needs. Within the prescribed format of the major, students can label their own major specialisation to be included as such on their diploma supplement.

There is also the possibility of a free major, in which you create your own programme with the help and guidance from an academic tutor.

In addition to your major courses, you will continue to follow the core programme and do integrative projects with students from the other major specialisations, putting your disciplinary theory into practice within a truly interdisciplinary setting. Additionally, the core programme allows you to improve your understanding of research methods and methodology.
