Electives Faculty of Humanities

Last updated on 22 September 2021

In the first semester of the third year of your bachelor degree programme, you can widen the scope of your programme by taking electives. You get to plan your programme for half a year (30 EC) at your own discretion. How you develop your skills is up to you. These are the options:

  • Select a combination of electives yourself
  • Electives within the programme
  • Electives within the faculty
  • Electives at another VU Amsterdam faculty
  • Electives at another university 

Always check the requirements for the electives, and check whether you need permission from the Examination Board in advance.
