Study Routes

When selecting your electives in the second part of your bachelor's programme, you can make use of the so-called Study Routes. By following a study route, you are ensured that your electives make up a cohesive whole and follow a specific theme.

Within the routes, there is a lot of freedom, as you can take multiple study routes and you are not required to follow all courses within one route. It is essential, however, that you do follow a research course and a certain amount of level 3 courses. More information about this can be found in the Graduation Requirements

Below you can read more about each study route and their corresponding courses.

This study route is a good match if you are interested in questions like why some countries are more advanced than others and have different levels of inequality. It also allows you to to better understand how labour markets operate, and how firms and individuals make strategic decisions using game theory.
