More Information-

Tilburg University offers a three-year Bachelor programme in Liberal Arts and Sciences, which combines a broad and interdisciplinary education with in-depth specialisation. The distinctive focus of Tilburg University’s Liberal Arts and Sciences programme is on Europe in a globalising world. Both historical and current societal key issues are tackled in the course of this international programme, taught entirely in English.

In the first year of their studies, students are offered a wide range of courses, ranging from law and literature to business and psychology. At the end of the first year students choose a Major. The five majors are: Business and Management, Law in Europe, Social Sciences, European History and Culture and Cognitive Neuroscience. Next to their Major, students choose a set of subsidiary subjects, providing them with a broad interdisciplinary perspective. Students round off their Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Sciences (BSc) degree by writing an academic essay (Bachelor’s Thesis). With this internationally acknowledged Bachelor of Arts degree, graduates are eligible for a Master’s degree.

Students are trained to approach complex issues from different perspectives and from a variety of academic disciplines. To achieve this intellectual flexibility, lectures are team-taught by lecturers from different academic backgrounds and research traditions. This method of instruction, called Team Teaching is unique to the Liberal Arts programme at Tilburg University.
