Course summary Are you up for a minor where you learn about communities, develop your collaboration skills and execute an innovative solution for a community problem? Then you are suited for this minor!
Course description After this 30 ECT minor you are able to analyse communities, you can develop an innovative plan for a community problem, initiate activities and execute a plan which is beneficial towards the members of the community in helping them to cope with their problems. In this minor you learn what communities are, how they work and collaborate with students from another studieprogram. Lectures such as basics of civil society, sociology, history, politics, networking, co creation, professionals and institutions in communities, community problems (addiction, poverty, loneliness, getting older, etc.) and solutions will be given. Together with co-students you’ll develop a plan on how to tackle a real life community problem and execute this plan with your co-students and professionals. To help you, there will be lectures about professional entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability. The exam is writing a article, doing a TED talk and developing a portfolio. To fully understand communities we find it important that you spend 50% of your time in communities and / or doing practical assignments. Also we are going to a foreign country for a symposium / study week.
