During the programme, you will be part of an interdisciplinary team of max. 10 students and two supervisors. Each team works on a socially relevant issue for an external client. As a team, you will determine how to tackle the problem. During the project, you will work towards a relevant end product. Specific prior knowledge of the topic is not required.
Next year (2022-2023) you can choose between six different interdisciplinary projects. Click here for an overview of the projects!
All teams start with a kick-off weekend in October. During this weekend, you will get to know your fellow students, supervisors and the assignment(s). After the kick-off weekend, your team will have weekly meetings, on a set evening of the week. The supervising teachers monitor the project and attend the meeting once every three weeks.
The honours programme Project Impact is here for you! We will help you achieve your goals and match your interests as closely as possible. During the year we will regularly discuss your progress with you. The focus is on your own learning goals, your personal development and the progress of the project.
Project Impact prepares you for your future career. You learn to collaborate, and also reflect extensively on the contribution you can make to a team. Moreover, you follow a series of personal leadership workshops, in which you learn how to create support for your own ideas within an organization; how you deal with conflict; and how you build a network within and outside your own organization.
Study trip abroad
For the project you will go on a four-day study trip abroad. This will put the issue in an international comparative perspective, and you will work on team building. In consultation with the supervisors, you decide on the location and the content of the programme.
