About

Culture refers to the way people learn to value, believe, behave and express themselves. Are you interested in cultures in other parts of the world? Or do you want to better understand what's happening right around the corner? Either way, the Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology programme of the University of Amsterdam will give you a new perspective on the world around you.

Overview

Dual language programme

The dual language Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology programme of the University of Amsterdam offers both an English-only and a Dutch/English track. During the first one and a half years, when all students follow the same obligatory courses, all lectures are taught in English, and students can choose between English or Dutch tutorials. Assignments will be written in the language of instruction of the relevant group. Concluding exams (tentamens) will be offered in both languages, so that students can choose to write their answer in either English or Dutch.

After the first one and a half years, students follow a number of obligatory courses, while they also select their own study program out of a series of specialisation courses. These specialisation courses will be taught in English. Students can choose between delivering their written work in English or Dutch.

Students will make a final choice for the English-only or Dutch/English language track after three semesters and will be assisted in this choice by their mentor and study adviser. Their diploma-supplement will show one of either varieties.

General requirements

  • Students applying for one of our Bachelor’s programmes should hold a Dutch VWO diploma, a HBO propedeuse or a foreign diploma that is equivalent to one of these diplomas. If you have foreign credentials, mathematics and English should be included in your final examination or attended until the last year of your secondary education.
  • The starting level of a regular study programme at Dutch universities is comparable to that of other Western European countries, but it is generally higher than in most countries outside Western Europe.
  • Students must be able to read textbooks, understand lectures, take part in classroom discussions and undertake written work in English. Applicants are therefore required to submit proof of sufficient proficiency in English (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): level C1).
