Voices of Academic Core, Voices of Humanities, Voices of Social Science and Voices of Science are designed to allow students to participate in building their own curriculum. Students can engage and participate in this process by suggesting new courses, altering current courses and introducing changes to their tracks and majors. The Voices of – groups have direct impact on the community by bringing their proposals to the Student Council and Heads of Studies.
The Voices of Science group aims to develop the Science curriculum by advising the Head of Studies in adding, changing, and sometimes removing courses. They have made great achievements in the years by implementing new courses such as ‘Statistics for Science’.
Besides curriculum development, the Voices of Science group also aims to assist students, in building their own curriculum. Each semester a Speed-dating event is organized to help first and second year students in their choices by providing them with the opportunity to talk to third year students in their fields. Moreover, the Voices of Science group annually reviews the Science curriculum to examine the level, planning, and titles of the courses in the different tracks.
Do you always have something to say about the science curriculum? Join the Voices of Science group or communicate your ideas by sending an email or just talking to one of us in person! We would mainly like to welcome some first years to ensure the activity of the Voices of Science group in upcoming years. Yet, also second and third years are very welcome to join, as your insights in the curriculum are very valuable.
The Voices of Social Science group aims to develop the Social Sciences curriculum by advising the Head of Studies in adding, changing, and sometimes removing courses. The Voices of Social Science group is looking for new members! If you’d like to join, message firstname.lastname@example.org
The overarching success of the Voices of Humanities group of previous years was the final implementation of a Gender Studies course into the AUC Curriculum. Having been topic of many discussions, the execution finally followed. In addition, the Culture track was being analyzed and re-done by the faculty in collaboration with students. The aim was to make the track more coherent for the students and incorporate changes suggested by students over previous years.
The Voices of Academic Core group works on reviewing methods courses, Academic Writing Skills and Logic. There was also a larger curriculum review that the Voices of Academic Core group conducted to ensure greater coherence and structure within the Academic core.
