Arts, Media and Society (BA)
If you’re ready to take on an extra challenge during your bachelor’s programme, options like the Honours College, the Humanities Lab and the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA) will give you additional depth, intensity and study credits. You can even do a double degree.
If you want to get even more out of your study, why not enrol for the Leiden University Honours College, which is an extracurricular programme for bachelor’s students who are willing and able to do more than their regular academic programme requires of them.
Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA)
You can also combine a bachelor’s programme from Leiden University’s Humanities Faculty with arts courses. In a double-degree programme, for example, students at the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK) in The Hague can combine their programme with the Arts, Media and Society bachelor’s programme at Leiden University. This is all made possible by the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA), a collaborative research institute that combines the strengths of Leiden University and the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

As student of the Faculty of Humanities you can attend the Honours College programme of your own faculty. However it is also possible to attend a programme of one of the other faculties.
The Humanities is the field of study that includes everything that make humans human. We have different cultures and languages. Different groups have their own histories, which they tell stories about. We produce and enjoy music, theatre, paintings and films. All these typical human activities and the products thereof are studied in the humanities, and have been for centuries.
With expedition you can either dive into a subject in more detail or expand your horizons. With different elective topics at hand you will research the differences and similarities between humanities, social and life sciences. You receive challenging, small-group, intensive instruction from top scholars, specialists who have earned their name in education and research.
The programme includes elements like guest lectures, seminars and excursions. For example, you can learn how to make a documentary, design an opinion page or draft a policy document. It gives you the chance to gain the needed practical experience, which also enhances your regular degree programme.
