University of Amsterdam

Certificate / Diploma Summer course Amsterdam

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary The Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society is an intensive four-week summer course, which focuses on the study of sexuality across cultures and is taught by an international faculty team.
Course description The Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society was founded in 1995. The aim of the course is to explore and study the social and cultural dimensions of human sexuality and gain training in areas of sexuality research - both theory and method - not commonly available in other institutions. The participation of an international multidisciplinary faculty and students from different educational and cultural backgrounds provides a fruitful and challenging atmosphere enjoyed by students and faculty alike. During seminars, lunches, and weekly "get-togethers," conversations, and activities, informal contacts between the faculty, students, and guest lecturers flourish. The sharing of varied experiences, research, plans of work, and perspectives provide a unique networking opportunity, thereby increasing participants' knowledge within an international context. Additionally, Amsterdam is an ideal location for the Summer Institute. The open atmosphere and small scale of the city is experienced by both western and non-western students as a refreshing stimulant for active discussion of sexuality and culture.
