During one year, students will follow three seminars, each consisting of 4 meetings. After the three seminars, all students in the GHIS programme organize a fourth seminar together in which they share what they have learned during the previous seminars.

Each study period students will follow one seminar. Before the start of each period, students can indicate which seminar they would like to follow. The coordinator will determine in which seminar each student is placed. Topics that were included in the seminars of last year were: ‘The societal impact of antibiotic resistance’,'Complexity of climate change', 'Is the era of globalization over?' and ‘Public Order and Security’.
