The students I met only increased HHP’s openness and diversity, as they came from all over the map-geographically, ideologically, and intellectually.
It taught me to think like a historian, to do historic research, to formalize my findings into papers, and to present those findings to an academic audience.
My experience at HHP is one of the most important stages in my academic education.
The interaction with your peers is co-operative rather than competitive, which enables a nurturing learning environment where even socializing feels like education.
I experienced a scholarly milieu that saw me not only as a student, but also as a young scholar, enticing me to participate in conferences and submit articles for journals and anthologies.
It wasn’t just the material that drew me so deeply into the Hermetica program and, ultimately, the field: it was the people, the environment, the feel of HHP.
To be treated as a scholar-in-the-making, as well as being able to discuss my academic passion with likeminded students, is something I truly value with the MA programme in Amsterdam.
