Rik Pulles is a Philosophy, Politics and Society student at Radboud University.

What do you like about the programme/specialisation and why? How has the programme/specialisation challenged you (in relation to your previous education)?

Philosophy, Politics and Society is the perfect intersection of philosophical inquiry and contemporary issues for me. It has challenged me to look carefully at the deeper structures of seemingly superficial everyday events.

What do you think about the atmosphere in class (for example the relationship between students and with the teachers/researchers)?

The programme is well-constructed and above all it invites students to participate actively. There is much room for discussion and criticism. Teachers show genuine interest in the students and are eager to help them in any way possible.

What do you find most challenging in your Master’s (specialisation)? Have you encountered any obstacles?

So far I have not encountered real obstacles. However, the challenging programme stimulates me to get the most out of myself. The very precise and thorough feedback of the teachers contributes to this. Ultimately, this has surely helped me to reach the next level of my writings and my academic skills.

Are you currently doing an internship? Or what is your thesis about?

Currently, I am writing my thesis about the ontological modality of the phenomenon of the public debt.

Why do you think is it important that there are people out there with this degree? What are your plans once have received your Master's degree?

People with this master degree show a great expertise in tackling global issues. They have the courage and skills to transverse boundaries by thinking outside the box, grasping issues into bigger frameworks, and coming up with new ways of engagement by reinterpreting issues.
