Study in Amsterdam - History of Hermetic Philosophy
The HHP Centre is fully integrated in the University of Amsterdam’s educational system. This means that in order to enroll in our teaching programmes you have to go through the normal channels of the UvA’s Faculty of Humanities. Please note: BA programmes are handled by the College of Humanities, while the international MA programmes 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 programme

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

MA programme

Our MA programme exists in a one-year and a two-year variety. The one-year variety is listed in the course catalog as “Spirituality and Religion (Theology and Religious Studies)”. The two-year option is “Religious Studies (Theology & Religious Studies (research))”.

Please note: despite the official title we do not teach theology. This misleading label has been forced upon all Dutch programmes in Religious Studies for political/bureaucratic reasons). For all practical details about the application procedure, see the Graduate School of Humanities website.
