Honours College

Do you think you can cope with an additional challenge that will help you get the most out of your study? If so, participate in our Honours College and develop your talents to the full. The Honours College is an extracurricular programme that has been specifically designed for bachelor’s students who can, and want to, do more. With our excellent guidance and education on a small scale you’ll discover talents you didn’t know you had and be given the opportunity to get the most out of yourself. The Honours College will earn you extra credits, as well as a certificate if you complete it. It starts in the second half of the first year with an orientation course and lasts until the end of the bachelor’s programme.

Honours College Crossing the Borders in World Archaeology
In the first year of the track, you will already get an idea of what kind of job opportunities are available in the archaeological field. By doing two short internships, you will get in touch with the field of research and the work of commercial, non-profit, and government agencies engaged in archaeology and heritage. You will be pushed to be the best that you can be, and you will be challenged to take the lead in your own development. During the Theoretical Seminars, you will have a closer look at current issues in archaeology and learn to have critical and reflective discussions on the matters discussed.

  • Location: Leiden
