Studieprogramma

Unsplashed background img 2
opbouwA UCU education is characterized by its broad and interdisciplinary nature. As a student, therefore, you design your own curriculum. This means that the curriculum does not have a fixed structure; instead you combine different courses to assemble a personal study programme.
1e jaar During the first year you explore the academic world and the various academic disciplines. You take general academic skills courses that help develop writing, presentation and methodological skills, and you start learning a foreign language. You take courses at the introductory 1-level in all of the three departments - Science, Social Science and Humanities.

3e jaar During the third - or senior - year efforts are focused on finalizing the programme by gaining sufficient disciplinary knowledge to apply for a Master's programme or a job. This culminates in the research thesis, a sizeable academic paper on a topic of your own choice. You take courses at the intermediate 2- and advanced 3-level.

majors

major Humanities

UCU education is characterized by its broad and interdisciplinary nature. The curriculum does not have a fixed structure: students combine different courses to assemble a personal study program.

To obtain a degree in Humanities (Bachelor of Arts) your curriculum must satisfy a number of criteria.

You must take at least ten courses in the Humanities department. Four of these courses must be at the advanced 3-level (one of which is the research thesis). You must complete tracks in at least two different fields of study within the Humanities department. A track is a 3-level course and the prerequisite 1- and 2-level courses that lead up to it.

In addition you must take a general skills course in the Humanities. This course gives you insight into the methodological approaches that characterize research in the Humanities, and teaches you how to make a choice for the appropriate methodology in your own research.

The Humanities major is concluded with a research thesis, to be written in the third year. To produce this thesis you formulate a research question based on literature study, define research material and apply a suitable method to investigate the proposed topic. You perform a critical analysis and write a coherent paper to present and evaluate your findings.

major Social Science

UCU education is characterized by its broad and interdisciplinary nature. The curriculum does not have a fixed structure: students combine different courses to assemble a personal study program.

To obtain a degree in Social Science you must take at least ten courses in the Social Science department. Four of these courses must be at the advanced 3-level (one of which is the research thesis). You must complete tracks in at least two different fields of study within the Social Science department. A track is a 3-level course and the prerequisite 1- and 2-level courses that lead up to it.

In addition you must take two courses in Methods and Statistics. The Social Science major is concluded with a research thesis, to be written in the third year.

Transnational Law Program
For students with a special interest in law UCU offers a dedicated law track, the Transnational Law Program (TLP). TLP is a collaborative effort of Utrecht University, Washington University School of Law and various other institutions.

In the Netherlands you need a Dutch law degree to qualify for the so called toga professions – notary, judge, lawyer (civiel effect). A Dutch law program does not cater to students who wish to explore different talents and sample the diversity of the academic world. UCU and the Utrecht University School of Law offer a solution in the form of a double degree program.

major Science

UCU education is characterized by its broad and interdisciplinary nature. The curriculum does not have a fixed structure: students combine different courses to assemble a personal study program.

To obtain a degree in Science you must take at least twelve courses in the Science department. Four of these courses must be at the advanced 3-level (one of which is the research thesis). You must complete tracks in at least two different fields of study within the Science department. A track is a 3-level course and the prerequisite 1- and 2-level courses that lead up to it.

One of these 12 courses is Science Laboratory. The course aims to introduce students to the practical aspects and experimental possibilities of research in the various science disciplines. Science laboratory courses are taught at the laboratory facilities of the Utrecht University science faculty.
The Science major is concluded with a research thesis, to be written in the third year.

Students who wish to study medicine or apply for a program in a related field (like biomedical science) after UCU must take certain courses in life science, biomedical science and chemistry. This body of courses is referred to as the pre-med track. Pre-med is not a separate degree or status; rather it can serve as a requirement for a future in medicine.

Na de studie

Unsplashed background img 2
The vast majority of UCU graduates enroll in Master's programmes, in virtually all fields of specialization. As a result, they find jobs with a large range of employers in a large range of fields. UCU graduates work as doctors, lawyers, psychologists, policy advisors, consultants, politicians, PhD researchers, marketeers, and in many other professions. It all depends on which Master's programme you choose after UCU.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

There is one thing all UCU graduates have in common. At UCU, you learn skills that are valuable not only for your education, but also for your professional career, such as giving presentations, critically analyzing an argument, and debating. And because you take courses in different academic disciplines, you develop the creativity and flexibility to bridge differences and think 'outside the box'. These characteristics are highly valued in the labour market.
