Understanding the Dutch and their culture
Moving to a new country can be both exciting and challenging, as you will be faced with new ideas and habits. This experience will help you to value other cultures and to look at your own culture with fresh eyes. The Dutch Society module has been especially designed for international students who will study at Windesheim for a few months. The aim is very practical: to get an insight into Dutch culture and how the Dutch deal with the challenges of modern-day life, in comparison to your own culture.
This module is scheduled at the same time as Innovation Research Competences for Urban Development. They can therefore not be taken simultaneously.
What's the module Dutch Society like?
Dutch Society (5 ECTS credits)
The module Dutch Society introduces you to Dutch history, politics, environment and economics. We challenge you to take a critical and comparative look at the Netherlands through the eyes of your own society. By comparing the two, you will not only learn more about the values and habits of the Dutch, but also about the customs of your own culture. And because you are studying with people from all over the world, you will also find out more about the cultural differences between you and your classmates. You will present your ideas about a cultural topic and deliver an essay to back up your presentation.
