Extracurricular Opportunities

Are you keen to take on an extra challenge, over and above this Public Administration and Organisation Science Master’s programme? One option might be the Public Administration and Organisation Science Academy. The Academy combines all broadening, deepening and distinguishing activities of the Master’s programme. By participating in one of these activities, you will strengthen your profile as a Public Administration and Organisation Science Master's student.

Examples include:

THESIS-PLUS TRACK

  • Thesis-plus Advisory Track
    Every student in this Master’s programme carries out a research project, then writes it up in the form of a thesis. As an extra challenge, you can opt to supplement your thesis with a consultancy report (for a specific organisation). You will be assisted in a track that teaches you how to structure an advisory report.
  • Thesis-plus Article Track
    While working on your thesis, you can also opt to write an academic article based on your research. You will be assisted in writing articles.
  • Thesis-plus Art Track
    You can explore ‘arts-based’ methods, while working towards an alternative form of Master’s thesis, involving a video, a piece of music, a drawing, or a poem, for example.

INTERNATIONAL STUDY TRIP

Within your own Master’s programme, you can organise an international study trip, together with lecturers and your fellow students.

GLOBAL STUDIES

Your programme can also include Global Studies activities (Global Studies is part of UGlobe – Utrecht Centre for Global Studies). See the website for details.
