In your first year you take six compulsory courses (45 EC) and you do a consultancy project (15 EC).
In your second year you take two elective courses (15 EC) and you write your Master’s thesis (45 EC). Electives allow you to specialise in a field of your interest and can be related to your thesis topic. These must be relevant to your programme. You can choose from pre-approved electives (below) or you can choose your own course and ask your programme leader (and the Board of Examiners) if they will accept it. It is possible to take other courses offered by Utrecht University, another Dutch university, or a university abroad.
