The BA Honours Programme is designed for students who want to get more out of themselves and their academic training. It is a complementary programme of 45 ECTS that you can follow alongside your regular Bachelor’s degree programme without having to pay an extra tuition fee. The programme lasts 2,5 year and is themed around deepening of your regular programme and broadening of knowledge and understanding with a broader view. On that account the interdisciplinary approach will be very important, next to intensifying the knowledge of your own Bachelor’s degree programme. Together with students from all faculties you will look into scientific and social issues from different disciplinary angles. More information about the Honours College can be found here.
As an Honours student you will participate in the evenings in intensive education in a small group setting of like-minded, motivated students. In the Petrus Camper Track personal development will be a key theme. It offers you broadening and deepening of your knowledge and development of your academic skills and mind-set.
After completing the Honours Programme you will receive an Honours record on your Bachelor’s Diploma Supplement along with a Letter of Recommendation from the Rector Magnificus of the University of Groningen and the Dean of the Honours College. This gives you a head start when applying for a position in science, business or government.
