AUC featured: Liberal Arts Go Dutch

13 February 2013

After Utrecht University founded the first liberal arts-oriented “University College” in 1998, several other Dutch research universities, including the Universities of Amsterdam, Leiden, and Maastricht, followed suit. At least two more university colleges, at the University of Twente and Erasmus University Rotterdam, are scheduled to open this September.
