The study association Synthesis was established in 2017 to connect the students of the Research masters of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen. These masters are Modern History & International Relations; Archaeology; Classical, Medieval & Early Modern Studies; Clinical Linguistics; Language & Cognition; Language & Communication Technologies; Arts, Media & Literary Studies and Cultural Leadership. 

Our ‘mission’ is to plan social and academic events that can both help the students with their studies and also distract them. We organize social events like Pub Crawls, Borrels, Movie Nights and much more. Academic events take the form of workshops, lectures and PhD-events. Synthesis can enrich your academic and social life in Groningen as it offers you the opportunity to meet a wide array of people that are in a similar position of life.

If you wish to become a member, you can reach us at for any questions or, if you are already certain you want to become a member, simply fill out our registration form here.
