Tilburg School of Humanities

Understanding Communication & Culture

Society 3.0: the computer as an integral part of our homes, deeply affecting our culture and the way we communicate. Research and education at the Tilburg School of Humanities (TSH) is primarily centered on this World 3.0, on the digital junction of culture, philosophy, religion, language and communication, i.e., e-humanities. This is part of why the TSH takes up a unique position in the Netherlands.

TSH also holds a strong position, recognized both nationally and internationally. In national rankings, Bachelor's and Master's programs of the TSH are rated excellent on a regular basis, as was the case recently for the Communication and Information Sciences program and the Culture Studies program in the Keuzegids (impartial national overview ranking the educational programs in Dutch higher education).
