Overview and insight
You are taking a degree that suits you but you lack overview, the position of your discipline in the big picture. Perhaps you work in a specialised field, but you also want to acquire broader knowledge in order to be able to better respond to our time and current developments. Or perhaps you have always been interested in the foundations of our society and you would like to know more? As an academic institute, this is the greater depth we offer.
The Amstel Institute for the Liberal Arts and Sciences (AILAS) is currently offering a taught programme for:
Professionals with an academic degree
Others with academic degrees
In our programmes you will become acquainted with the origins of our society, the sources within the Western tradition. Such fundamental knowledge provides overview as well as insight, and stimulates independent thought, important to both career and personal development.
