North American Studies (MA)
Get the most out of your studies at Leiden University by taking part in our extracurricular activities.
Social and academic programme events
We want you to be part of the academic community that is formed by our staff. Our small classes and a range of social events organised by the North American Studies programme throughout the year give you valuable time interacting with other students and your teachers.
There are opportunities to broaden your knowledge and world experience by participating in an exchange programme at a top university in the U.S. or Canada. The International Office of the Faculty of Humanities will be able to help you make the right decision for your time studying abroad.
Read the blogs of our student Floris Heidsma about his experiences studying as an exchange student at the University of Calgary.
