Program description

The Roosevelt Academy is one of the honours colleges of Utrecht. A degree from Roosevelt Academy qualifies you for a career in international academic, business, or public administration.

At Roosevelt Academy (RA) students can complete their bachelor's program within three years by taking a minimum of 24 courses from the three main academic departments: Arts & Humanities, Science, and Social Science. Subjects to choose from include those covering the arts and the humanities such as Philosophy, Film, Theater and Media Studies, Literature, American Studies, or (Art) History to those related to the social sciences or science such as Psychology, Sociology, Cultural Anthropology, Physics, Political Science and International Relations, Mathematics or Geography.

Furthermore, the Academic Core department offers courses in foreign languages (including English, Spanish, French, German, and Dutch (for non-native speakers of Dutch)), in Methods and Statistics, in Rhetoric and Argumentation, and in Journalism. Unique to RA are also the special Performing Arts and Pre-Medical programs. Students can select courses in their first year, albeit with their prospective major in mind and within the boundaries of required ACC courses. Depending on their choice of major, students ultimately graduate either as a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or as a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.).

Unlike most other Dutch universities, Roosevelt Academy is modeled on the American and British college system and bases its educational program on the Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) principle -- a teaching philosophy originating from Anglo-Saxon higher education which presupposes that a general, broad bachelor education is the first step towards a more specialized master's program. At RA students therefore do not only take courses in one specific discipline such as English, Law or Economics.
