Master Honours Classes
Master Honours Classes are small-scale, extra-curricular, interdisciplinary courses that address both theory and practice. Are you looking for extra challenge alongside your master studies? Why not register for an Honours Class?
Small scale & interdisciplinary
Master Honours Classes are small scale, which means there’s plenty of scope for personal focus and debate. Classes address complex scientific and social issues which demand an interdisciplinary approach. By studying alongside students from diverse study programmes, you’ll learn to tackle issues from different perspectives and work with people from outside your field of study.
Theory & practice
You’ll also be challenged by innovative forms of education. Not only will you delve into theory, you’ll also carry out practical assignments. You might find yourself attending a guest lecture, tackling a practical problem or even undertaking a project for an external partner. Through this approach, you'll learn to apply scientific theory to practice.
To follow a Master Honours Class you must meet the following admission requirements:
- You are following a master’s programme at Leiden University;
- Your average grade for your bachelor’s programme was 7.0 or higher;
- You are highly motivated.
