The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) is one of the six faculties at Maastricht University. It was founded in 1994.
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 of Europeanisation, globalisation, scientific and technological development, political change and cultural innovation.
The research institute of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) at Maastricht University studies societies and cultures as they unfolded during the modern and contemporary era in a radically interdisciplinary manner. We analyse the interrelationships of Europeanisation, globalisation, scientific and technological development, political change and cultural innovation. We are interested in how today’s societies cope with and reflect these challenges in various ways.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is housed in several historic buildings in the city centre of Maastricht. These structures and the artwork in and around them add to both the city’s and the university’s special atmosphere. The buildings, as well as the arts and cultural heritage, are definitely worth a closer look.
At FASoS, we are also focused on creating an international environment, a place where our differences become our strengths. Every day, our students and staff are challenged with differing viewpoints and experiences as they interact peers from all over the world. All of the faculty’s programmes are taught entirely in English and with 70% of our students and 50 % of our staff coming from abroad, FASoS is Maastricht University’s most international faculty. Such diversity creates an atmosphere that strengthens the international orientation of our research and education.
