Bachelor Liberal Arts and Science
University College Roosevelt
The Liberal Arts and Sciences educational concept is based upon the idea that today’s most complex problems can no longer be solved with a mono-disciplinary approach. Students at University College Roosevelt construct their own academic program, tailor-made to their individual interests. In doing so, the program prepares them for a world whose demands and challenges will grow more complex each year, while optimally preparing them for the master’s program or the job of their choice.
UCR’s three-year program, with two semesters a year, requires students to take four courses per semester. A total of at least 24 courses is needed to obtain either a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree, awarded by Utrecht University. All of the more than 200 courses UCR offers are part of one of our four departments: Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, Science and Academic Core.
Generally, students focus on two to three related fields of study, resulting in combinations such as Politics, Law, and Economics (major: Social Sciences); History, Literature, and Film, Theatre & Media Studies (major: Arts & Humanities); or Earth & Environmental Science and Biology (major: Science). We have also seen such combinations as Mathematics and Music; Anthropology, Law and Life Science; and Literature and Cognitive Science.
While other schools also offer Liberal Arts and Sciences programs, one of the distinguishing features of UCR is our emphasis on undergraduate research.
