Liberal Arts and Sciences: Global Challenges (BA/BSc)
Why study Liberal Arts and Sciences at LUC The Hague?
LUC is located in the heart of The Hague, the home to more than 150 international organisations and multinational companies, and over 100 foreign embassies. In addition, the Dutch legal capital hosts no less than five international courts of law: the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court, the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. Known as the International City of Peace and Justice, The Hague represents a globally-significant site for the pursuit of a stable, just world order.
The city of The Hague is fundamentally a source and an inspiration for our Global Challenges programme. The growing Campus The Hague of Leiden University, with its English-language academic environment, offers an active, stimulating context for living and learning. The numerous NGO’s, international organisations, governmental ministries and research institutes provide expertise, host field trips, and offer internship possibilities. Societal Engagement projects focusing on the city, ranging from urban waste and recycling to the effects of evolving cultural diversity, are interwoven into the College’s relations with the surrounding city. Service-based learning – contributing to the local community through services provided, as a central element of Global Citizenship – is a key aspect of this. Additionally, varied landscapes across The Hague’s large urban parks and adjacent coastal dunes provide multiple opportunities for student scientific research
