About

How do we distinguish literary texts from non-literary ones? What role does literature play in society, and what role did it use to play? Students taking Utrecht University’s Bachelor program in Literary Studies will take a comparative look at the literature of all eras, ranging from antiquity to the present time, focusing both on literature in itself and on its relation to other art forms and types of media. This program takes in everything from epic poems to novels, and from novels to fan fiction.

With the Bachelor's program History at Utrecht University, you dive into history to understand events in contemporary society. ... [+]

About

Why should we be concerned with the past? After all, aren't we living in the here and now? In the History program, you will learn that historical studies are not just about the past, but are also about the present: you will use your historical knowledge to understand contemporary events.

You will study history based on all kinds of sources: from original letters to coins and inscriptions and from diplomatic treaties to propaganda images. You will collect and evaluate evidence, which you will then analyze and interpret. These are highly transferable skills.

At Utrecht, we also think that it’s important to put everything into perspective. This means that several - sometimes contradictory - views of the past play a central role.... [-]

How do religions come into being? How do they affect people and societies? What role does religion play in various cultures and conflicts?

Most cultures are profoundly shaped by religious phenomena. Of the seven billion people on Earth, six billion call themselves religious. Religion does not occur in isolation; it connects with people's daily behavior, economically, politically, socially, and psychologically. Wherever there are people, there is religion, always and everywhere. Religion is one of the forces driving humankind, which is why knowledge of religion is so important. The central question you will learn to ask yourself is not to what extent religions are 'true', but how religion affects people's lives and what people do with it. The interaction between religion, culture, and society is the main focus of this bachelor's programme.... [-]
