Liberal Arts and Sciences: Global Challenges (BA/BSc)
Upon receiving their diploma from LUC, our students spread their wings to pursue prestigious master’s degrees, PhD studies or to start their professional careers. Considering the emphasis on global citizenship, it is unsurprising that many of our graduates move abroad for their next step in life.
“After graduating from LUC The Hague one still has many options to continue your studies by doing a master’s programme. As I majored in Global Justice, I obviously applied for (Public) International Law, but my exploration did not stop there. I also applied for master programmes in International Relations, a field of study that combines aspects I studied at LUC in various interdisciplinary courses. Right now I have the opportunity to choose from among prestigious universities throughout Europe.”

I graduated from LUC with a set goal in mind: I wanted to work before starting a Master's degree. I couldn't have made a better decision. I got an internship in the Embassy of Spain in Jakarta, Indonesia. I believe LUC's interdisciplinary curriculum prepared me for this job in the sense that I had to resort to concepts from my first year International Law class, employ terminology from my second year Economics' class or apply IR theories from a 3rd year course to understand Spanish-Indonesian diplomatic relations. LUC essentially laid the foundation for allowing me to pursue my internship successfully in different areas of the Embassy/
Graduating LUC in the winter of 2017, I was very motivated to gain some practical experience before pursuing a master’s degree in the fall. I was lucky enough to spend the following six months interning at the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in Murmansk, Russia. LUC had prepared me well for this, and especially my International Justice major and capstone came into direct use as I assisted with organising seminars and writing reports related to Arctic cooperation, shipping, fisheries and indigenous people. As my time in Murmansk further triggered my interest for political science and diplomacy, I reconsidered my initial plan of doing an LLM and decided to pursue a dual master’s degree in International Security between Sciences Po in Paris and MGIMO in Moscow. LUC’s interdisciplinary nature was really key in allowing me to make this change, and shows that you really have the privilege of choice thanks to the robust, interdisciplinary programme that LUC offers
