Politiek en Samenleving

Wat is de betekenis van burgerschap in de hedendaagse cultuur? Wat is de waarde van democratie? Welke invloed heeft de hedendaagse politieke sfeer op de toekomst van vrijheid? Met alle politieke strijd, culturele conflicten en fundamentele nieuwe technologieën, waar we tegenwoordig dagelijks mee geconfronteerd worden, is een grondig begrip van internationale kwesties meer nodig dan ooit. De master Politiek en Samenleving biedt je meer inzicht in hoe cultuur een bron van zorg en conflict kon worden in de (inter)nationale politieke arena. Je maakt kennis met de verschillende professionele rollen die cultuurwetenschapper kan spelen op het gebied van politiek en samenleving.

Alessandra Bianchi, Student Ambassadeur Politiek en Samenleving

Alessandra Bianchi is from Italy but was born and raised in Brussels, she has a bachelor degree in Political Sciences from the Free University of Brussels and decided to come to Maastricht for a master’s programme in Politics and Society. “During my bachelor I had the opportunity to spend a full year abroad. I went to Granada in Spain, learned the language and experienced the culture. After my bachelor’s degree I took a gap year to do voluntary work for an NGO in South-America and travelled. However, I wasn’t satisfied with my education, and found I lacked true academic skills and knowledge. Before my gap year I’d attended the Open Day at Maastricht University and decided that the Problem-Based Learning method would really provide an active in-depth learning experience, which was what I’d missed so far. I’m fascinated by the interdependency and complexity of societal issues nowadays, but with my background in politics I also want to make an impact, I therefore opted for the Politics and Society programme. With all the skills we are learning now, I have the feeling that I am receiving the keys to open many doors. That is a great prospect!”

“A speech by professor Jan de Roder, in which he talked about societal issues and new solutions, clinched my decision to study at this faculty.”

      Between 15 and 22 October, the University Library and Match collect coats for homeless people and people living in poverty. Coats can be donated from the 15th to the 22nd of October in the halls of the two University libraries. The action is part of the initiative 'Give a coat and warm a heart' of the foundation Samen voor Maastricht.

      The coats are donated to Dress for success, Foundation de Gouwe, Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland, Quiet Community Maastricht, the Voedselbank (Food Bank), Goodwill, the Doorgeefwinkel and the Salvation Army. According to the Samen voor Maastricht foundation, the number of homeless people, adults and children on the edge of society in Maastricht and surroundings is increasing. And living on the streets with a limited social network is tough.

      The collected coats are sorted and distributed in the MECC on Friday 26 October.
