Politicologie

2018-2019

De bacheloropleiding Politicologie richt zich op het bestuderen van machtsprocessen in de nationale en internationale orde. Hierbij staan drie elementen centraal. Ten eerste, de behartiging van conflicterende belangen door politieke partijen, maatschappelijke bewegingen en organisaties (input). Ten tweede, de regels en politieke instituties waarin die conflicten worden beslecht en politieke besluiten worden genomen (throughput). En ten slotte de beleidsuitkomsten en de doorwerking daarvan in de samenleving (output). Hierbij wordt ook aandacht besteed aan de mondialisering van de wereldpolitiek en hoe deze doorwerkt in de betrekkingen tussen staten en in de politiek en beleidsvorming binnen nationale politieke systemen.

Minor Business Administration
Description
Why are some companies outperforming their rivals? How is it that
companies like Nike and ASML are responsive to changes in customer
preferences and are successfully battling their competitors, whereas
companies like General Motors and Philips struggle? Why are companies
like Airbnb and Uber successful in developing and selling product and
service innovations, whereas publishers and record companies lack
innovative capacity? How is it possible that long-existing companies are
surpassed by new venture start-ups with radical different business
approaches, such as Shapeways and Blendle? The answers to these
questions show that high-performing companies excel in using new ways of
management and organization. Specifically, these companies have business
models that work in today’s dynamic environment.

In the Minor in Business Administration you will learn to build, assess,
and change business models and tackle management and organization
issues.

The Minor in Business Administration is a 30 EC programme taught in
English. You will become familiar with the foundations of business
administration: strategy, marketing, finance, accounting, logistics,
technology, and human resource management. Using business model
thinking, you will combine and apply the knowledge from these
disciplines to study businesses. In addition, midway the programme you
are asked to select a specialization theme, which enables you to obtain
a deeper understanding about the relationship between your profession
and a business discipline. In addition to academic skills, the programme
emphasizes professional skills, including creativity, communication,
reflexivity, and consultancy. The Minor Business Administration provides
you with knowledge and skills to successfully act in dynamic
organizations, irrespective of your professional background.

Students in the BSc programmes Economics and (International) Business
Administration are excluded from participating in this University Minor.

Minor Global Food Security
Description
Global food security is at the core of many of today’s societal
problems, varying from undernourished children to obese adults and
elderly; climate change presents a challenge for future food production;
novel technologies raise ethical questions with respect to animal
welfare, preservation of biodiversity, and protection of national policy
autonomy. These and many other societal issues are part of the content
of this course. These insights will be useful to a variety of academic
and societal fields, and may help you to choose your master’s programme.

This minor takes real world problems as a starting point. Examples,
assignments and (guest)lectures will be based on the variety of actual
challenges related to food security. Throughout the minor, culminating
in an advisory report in the last course, you will conduct an assignment
for a real organization active in the field of food security; e.g. the
Ministry of Economic Affairs; Oxfam Novib; FrieslandCampina.

Jobs are increasingly about combinations of insights and skills rather
than specialized knowledge only. In this minor you will acquire skills
and insights from different scientific backgrounds to be able to conduct
interdisciplinary research. The fact that this minor is offered by the
Amsterdam Centre for World Food Studies, an institute that brings
together researchers from different faculties of the VU to conduct
inter- and transdisciplinary research on food security, guarantees the
richness of skills and methods taught.

Minor Economics
Description
What is the future of employment in the face of technical innovation?
Why does the discovery of natural resources make a country sometimes
poorer rather than richer? How can we keep the pension and health care
system sustainable if there are only half as many working age people?
Why do economic crises occur? These questions illustrate how economics
touches upon the most pressing problems of today: economic well-being,
inequality and sustainability. In the minor in Economics you will learn
to tackle economic issues by learning to think like an economist.

The minor in Economics is a 30 EC programme taught in English. You will
become familiar with the development of economic thought, including the
principles of micro- and macroeconomic theory and key insights from
empirical economic analysis. You will gain insight into the role of
economic policy, learning to identify when markets fail and when policy
interventions may provide solutions. Finally, you learn to take a
structured approach to solving practical problems using economic core
concepts. Upon completion you will have a proven ability to apply sound
economic reasoning to a range of issues on a micro- and macroeconomic
level, for example related to health, law, environment, finance, labor,
transport, and development.

Students in the BSc programmes Economics and Business Economics as well
as Econometrics are excluded from participating in this university
minor.

Minor Psychologie en het Brein
Description
De kennis over de psyche en ons brein groeit snel. Wekelijks verschijnen
er artikelen en boeken met baanbrekende inzichten over de werking van
onze hersenen en het effect hiervan op ons gedrag. Deze kennis verandert
de wereld, met steeds sterk wordende effecten op marketing, rechtspraak,
technologie, computers, onze voeding en de economie. Het geeft ons
inzichten in waarin en waarom we van elkaar verschillen, en helpt ons
bepaalde groepsprocessen in de maatschappij te verklaren. Kennis over de
psychologie en ons brein zijn een must voor iedereen die wil begrijpen
waarom we doen wat we doen.

Doel
De minor Psychologie en het brein laat studenten kennismaken met de
vakgebieden die gedrag en brein onderzoeken. Studenten krijgen in de
minor een overzicht van de psychologie en de cognitieve
neurowetenschappen, en worden vervolgens geïntroduceerd in de manier van
onderzoek doen in deze velden. De doelstellingen hierbij zijn bij de
student:
a. de kennis aan te brengen om met verstand te oordelen over claims die
zowel binnen als buiten de wetenschap over psyche en brein worden
gemaakt,
b. de vaardigheden bij te brengen om zelf onderzoek te doen naar psyche
en brein.

Doelgroep:
De minor is aantrekkelijk voor studenten met een algemene interesse in
psychologie en de hersenen, met voorkennis van statistiek (zoals
aangeboden in bachelors in de sociale wetenschappen, economie, exacte en
biomedische wetenschappen).

Ingangseisen:
-Minstens 90 EC behaald binnen één bachelorprogramma.
-Minstens 6 EC behaald aan statistische vakken.

Aantal deelnemers:
Er geldt een maximum van vijftig studenten per jaar, die op basis van
First come First serve worden gekozen.

Law and Global Society (Minor)
Description
Globalisation impacts the way we live. We meet different people, learn
about diverse cultures, and internet facilitates world-wide
communication and information exchange. Law traditionally focuses on
nation states, but topics like migration, internet, climate, and
terrorism do not stop at the border. Quite the contrary. The objective
of this minor is to become aware of the fact that many societal issues
ask for a transboundary approach to law.

The minor explores the role of law in defining and resolving social
issues concerning the globalisation of societies. Central topics are
migration (transnational movement), internet (transnational
communications) and climate change (transnational action).
This minor offers students insight in questions, such as:
• Why transnational issues are not suited for unilateral, national
actions;
• What states can do within international law (such as European Union
law);
• The ways in which states are currently responding to these issues;
• The criticism of the current actions and regulations;
• Future perspectives.
After completing this minor, the student has knowledge of the core of
the legislation concerning the three topics, has gained insight in the
most important critique and analysis of this legislation (from a legal,
policy-orientated, sociological, anthropological and/or philosophical
perspective), and is capable of critically judging proposed changes. For
each of the topics the student knows which actors play a role in making
rules and policy, how states work together (or not), the consequences of
this (lack of) cooperation and the future perspective for transnational
regulations in migrations, climate change and internet. Knowledge of
these ‘case studies’ and the theory involved also enables student to
independently reflect on other areas of transnational problems, such as
security.

Minor Development and Global Challenges
Description
This minor explores a number of burning issues in the global world, such
as environment and sustainability, poverty and unequal economic growth,
global political economy, diversity and inequality, and urbanization.
Contrary to the previous minor entitled Development Studies, which
focused on issues surrounding poverty and social inequality in less
developed countries, or the Global South, this new minor approaches the
aforementioned issues through an understanding of “development” as a
field that not only pertains to so-called developing countries but also
to our own western, so-called developed, societies. In other words, the
minor Development and Global Challenges addresses a select number of
burning issues far away and in our own backyards.
The minor both addresses the policy level (including the role of states,
transnational corporations, and non-governmental organizations) and
local responses to contemporary global challenges; The minor critically
assesses earlier conceptualizations and approaches (governance) of
development and discusses their successes and failures; The minor
examines local responses to aforementioned issues, the importance of
political empowerment, and the conditions under which these responses
(and strategies) have been/can be successful; The minor addresses global
challenges such as environmental issues, urbanization and
sustainability, and social inequality both in the global south as well
as in the so-called developed world; The minor acknowledges the fact
that global challenges and burning issues are deeply connected at a
global scale, and need to be confronted at different levels (global,
national, local)

Minor Sociologie
Description
Bij Sociologie aan de VU duik je in actuele maatschappelijke
vraagstukken en problemen. Denk aan ontwikkelingen rondom vluchtelingen
en integratie, opkomend populisme, individualisering en sociale
ongelijkheid. Dit zijn onderwerpen waarover je veel hoort in de media en
waarover veel mensen een mening hebben. Als student sociologie zet je
een stap verder en analyseer je deze vraagstukken op basis van
wetenschappelijke inzichten. De minor is een introductie in de
sociologie en een uitstekende voorbereiding op de master Sociologie.
Met deze minor vergroot je verschillende vaardigheden die van pas komen
op de arbeidsmarkt, zoals het beter doorgronden van oorzaken en gevolgen
van actuele trends, het schrijven van een beleidsadvies of een
soortgelijk rapport, het vertalen van wetenschappelijke inzichten naar
mogelijke oplossingen voor actuele problemen en het samenwerken met
anderen.
