Priority Areas

The University of Amsterdam has assigned the status of Research Priority Area to a number of research themes that are particularly representative of the universities’ research programme.

The Faculty of Humanities participates in three of these themes: Brain and Cognition, Cultural Heritage and Identity, and Globalisation Studies. Apart from that, the faculty itself stimulates research in two new areas of research: Creative Industries and Digital Humanities.
