The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) has a staff of about 250, and over 1,800 students. In our teaching and research, we highlight major developments in societies and cultures as they have unfolded during the modern and contemporary eras. We seek to gain understanding of the interrelationships between Europeanisation, globalisation, scientific and technological development, political change and cultural innovation. We are interested in how today’s societies cope with these challenges through, amongst others, practices of remembrance, governance techniques, strategies for managing knowledge, technologies and risks, and ways of dealing with diversity and inequality. Understanding our present world is impossible without insight into its past and thus historical research is a key element of our scholarly and educational identity. FASoS houses in several recently renovated 18th-century buildings in the historic city centre of Maastricht. Further information on the faculty is available on our website: www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/fasos.
