Is this the right minor for you?
This minor, drawing on the unique expertise of Leiden University College staff, is specifically designed to appeal to a wide range of undergraduate students from the natural and social sciences and the humanities (BA & BSc).
The minor’s multi-disciplinary approach will introduce you to different perspectives that will enrich and broaden their chosen studies.
Identify patterns across disciplinary and geographical borders
The minor also draws inspiration from the Humanities Across Borders (HAB) initiative led by the International Institute of Asian Studies in Leiden, of which the LUC is a strategic partner. HAB involves a large network of university partners across Asia, Africa, Latin America, North America and Europe. This provides a source base for courses in the minor that make use of pedagogical innovations such as engaging with our immediate environment in The Hague, practice-based workshops, policy roundtables and engagement with experts and policymakers.
This will enable those of you who choose this minor to identify patterns across disciplinary and geographical borders and transform how you perceive possible solutions to complex problems.
