This Master's program is offered though a collaborative venture between our department and our counterpart at Radboud University. The program has been structured in such a way that you spend one day per week on average taking courses at the other university. Note that a secondary registration is required at Radboud Universiteit (Nijmegen), as half of the courses are taught there. More information can be found at
