More information about the minors

This minor is taught in Dutch. In this minor students get knowledge and insight in the Dutch public administration. In this minor, students will receive essential tools to find answers to important social issues in order to contribute to the improvement of public services. For more information go to the e-Prospectus.

Cyberspace has become one of the backbones of our global economy and of modern-day societies. Almost everything we do in our everyday lives, ranging from communication and media consumption to travel and leisure and from work to school is facilitated by, or even relies on digital, networked technologies. Because of our dependence on cyberspace, it is vital that data, information, and networks are secure. Information and communications must be properly protected, networks must be stable, and data and information must be always available. For more information go to the e-Prospectus.

Cyber Security Governance Essentials (in close cooperation with the Faculty of Science) is developed to provide students from LIACS and ISGA with an interest in cybersecurity challenges with a mixture of technical and governance knowledge to set them on a path towards specializing in cybersecurity. 

This minor is in Dutch. Kijk vanuit economisch perspectief naar maatschappelijke kwesties en leer er doordachte beleidsantwoorden op te formuleren. Deze minor wordt aangeboden in Den Haag en is interessant voor alle bachelorstudenten die na hun afstuderen een adviesfunctie bij de (semi-)overheid of in de non-profitsector ambiëren.

The minor Global Affairs is built on two pillars of International Relations: International Security and International Political Economy. This minor aims to provide students with the tools and knowledge to understand the most important global trends and challenges. In the minor students will explore the relationship between geo-political shifts and power instruments in International Relations: in the political/ military as well as in the financial/economic domain. For more information go to the  e-Prospectus.

Since WWII and the Cold War, intelligence agencies play an important role in policymaking and policy decisions, particularly with regards to a state’s internal security. In this minor program, attention is being paid to the structure, working methods and the qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques used by intelligence and security agencies that operated particularly during the last half of the 20th century and the present day. For more information go to the e-Prospectus.

This minor consists of courses which enable students to analyze complex governance problems in a national and international context. The public sector is increasingly a multi-level system, with interactions between public and private actors on the national, sub-national (provinces, regions) and international (e.g. EU, OECD, UN, WTO) level and various public, semi-public and private organizations that perform public tasks. In this minor students pay attention to decision-making processes in and interactions between and within those levels and organizations. For more information go to the e-Prospectus.

The knowledge base that this minor offers to analyse security-related topics, is multidisciplinary, and centres around three broad academic themes, which are connected to specific academic fields: Security, Safety and Justice. Security covers a broad range of research fields encompassing criminology, antiterrorism studies, and security management; the safety theme contributes via insights from risk management; and justice provides important concepts from legal studies, history and philosophy. This unique blend of knowledge from social and technical sciences allows students of the minor SSJ to address and analyse current-day security-related topics. To provide this broad spectrum of knowledge to students, TU Delft and Leiden University set up a cooperation. For more information go to the e-Prospectus.

The English taught set of two courses ‘Violence’ will start in September 2021. Third-year bachelor students who have a keen interest in violence studies can enroll in this brand-new 15 ECTS set of two courses.

The set of courses will focus on interpersonal violence (i.e. violence taking place between individuals), the most common types including physical violence and sexual violence. You you will study the origins, correlates, social contexts, and resilience after experiencing violence. You will delve deeper into the ways in which we can both prevent as well as respond to acts of violence.

What is a minor

A minor is a structured package of topics with which you can broaden your knowledge and competencies or focus more sharply on a specific area. Most minors last a semester and will earn a student 30 credits, which is often equal to the total elective quota. 

You can register for a minor via uSis from 3 May 13:00 hrs. up to and including 15 July 2021

You will find more information about minors on the website of Leiden University.
