How to enroll as a student at HHP

Relevant links and Frequently Asked Questions

HHP is fully integrated in the University of Amsterdam’s educational system. This means that in order to enroll in our teaching programs you have to go through the normal channels of the UvA’s Faculty of Humanities. Please note: BA programs are handled by the College of Humanities, while the international MA programs are handled by the Graduate School of Humanities. Questions about how to apply should always be addressed to the appropriate office. Please note: our secretary and academic staff cannot help you with details about the application process – you must go through the official channels.

BA program

Our BA courses are taught as part of the BA program Religiewetenschappen. For information about the program, as well as about how to apply, when to apply, and whom to contact, see:

MA program

Our MA program exists in a one-year and a two-year variety. The one-year variety is listed in the course catalog as “Theology and Religious Studies: Western Esotericism”. The two-year option is “Theology and Religious Studies: Religious Studies (Research MA)”. Please note: despite the official title we do not teach theology. This misleading label has been forced upon all Dutch programs in Religious Studies for political/bureaucratic reasons). For all practical details about the application procedure, see the Graduate School of Humanities website.
