What are Honours College tracks?
Please find below short descriptions of the three Honours College programmes and the other information meetings per faculty track.
This Honours track aims to prepare you for tackling global challenges. The track will educate students on how current problems play out among government, science and society and give them the skills to make impact, to negotiate, to tackle some of these issues theoretically, based on academic literature, and practically, at a local level.
The learning experience is thereby based on interactive activities, such as a trip to Brussels to visit the European Parliament, European Commission as well as the NATO. An important part of the track is an Honours Internship or Individual Research project, as well as a consultancy assignment for a partner organization in the Hague. Think tanks about global security issues and many simulations are within your reach. Students are involved in the program.
On campus information meetings in Wijnhaven from 18:00-19:00:
- 29 November 2021 (room 258),

Humanities Lab challenges students to cross disciplinary borders when working on topical issues such as plastic, the Internet, cultural memory, colonialism or identity. These issues are too complex to be handled by any one discipline, either from the natural or social sciences, from law, medicine or the humanities.
In Humanities Lab students learn how to switch their conceptual and methodological tools as they focus on different aspects of the problems at hand, working together in small groups to improve our understanding of the many different connections involved, pushing toward possible solutions. Humanities can make a real difference here!
Online Q&A sessions planned for:
- Monday 6 December 2021 at 7pm and
- Tuesday 7 December 2021 at 8pm.
The FSW Honours College focuses on the contributions of science to society. You engage with prominent scientists and societal experts, meet students from other disciplines, and work together to find solutions for contemporary societal problems.
The main goal is to prepare your contribution to tomorrow's world, starting from your own interests and motivation. Deeper knowledge of your own talents and competences will form your point of departure to obtain a broader interdisciplinary view of current scientific and societal challenges.
