North American Studies
Pre-master programmes are not independent study programmes; therefore you cannot apply for admission to the pre-master North American Studies (NAS). The pre-master programme is meant to provide a solution for students who have registered for the Master’s programme in North American Studies, but who, according to the admission committee, still have deficiencies to eliminate. Eligible students will be required to follow either a 30 EC pre-master track (one semester) or a 60 EC pre-master track (two semesters). Each track has two starting dates: September and February.
The following students are eligible for enrolment in the Pre-Master programme in North American Studies:
- Students who hold a bachelor’s degree from an academic university, but do not yet have sufficient knowledge of American Studies will be admitted to the master’s programme in NAS if they successfully complete a pre-master track in NAS of 30 EC;
- Students with a bachelor’s degree at a university of professional education (HBO) in History, English, European Studies, or Journalism will be admitted to the master’s programme in NAS if they successfully complete a pre-master track in NAS of 60 EC.
