At the end of the course, you can
- reflect on the relationship between your bachelor’s programme, the theme of the minor and the chosen electives, both with regard to content, (research) methods and theoretical discourse;
- take a substantiated standpoint in a public or scientific debate relevant to the theme, from the perspective of your bachelor’s programme and the chosen electives;
- formulate your own (professional) identity and skills and have insights into career opportunities for humanities scholars by appropriately assessing your own wishes and capabilities for the labour market, particularly in relation to the field of your minor yet outside the context of academia;
- effectively profile yourself by networking successfully, drawing up a professional CV, writing an appealing letter of application, and carrying out an efficient job interview.
This course is an online course which you are required to complete during your stay abroad. You will learn to consider the societal relevance of the humanities in general and your own programme in particular and reflect on cultural differences between the Netherlands and the other country.|
In addition, you also look to the future. What will your future contribution to society be? Where does the knowledge you have acquired during your studies come into its own and where do your personal preferences and qualities lie? How can you express your strengths convincingly, for example for future employers? And how can you translate your studies into a nice job?
Please note: the first opportunity to hand in your portfolio is 1 December 2020 if you study abroad during the first semester.
