Study programme English Language and Culture year 3

Study year

In the third year, theory and practice are combined and you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills to find solutions to social issues of topical relevance. This will be done as part of a minor. We offer a variety of minors with a societal theme, varying from gender and diversity to migration and big data. Choosing one of these themes will help you add focus to your programme, making it easier to set yourself apart from others when entering the job market.

About this study curriculum

Minor structure

You will take courses on your chosen theme and participate in a think tank with the aim of finding a solution to a problem within that theme. This will be done on behalf of a company or an institution, along with students from other degree programmes. Many of our students see this practical assignment as an excellent advantage on the job market. An individual internship is also possible in some cases.

Discover our minors

Contributing to a better society

The themes of our minors were inspired by the National Research Agenda, which addresses scientific questions posed to the scientific community by the general public in the Netherlands and abroad. As part of your minor, you will focus on answering one of these questions. In the process, you will also learn how to approach an issue from different perspectives. This will help you develop a nuanced opinion and work on sustainable solutions, which is exactly what our society needs.

Studying abroad

Nijmegen is a great place to study, but you may also want to head out and see if you have international ambitions. Instead of taking a minor on a societal theme, you can choose to study abroad. The degree programme has excellent contacts with universities around the world and can help you find a suitable position.
