Caribbean Studies / Field Research Program Aruba

Bachelor students planning their thesis for Spring 2019 may be eligible for participation in a program that allows them to do community-based field research for their thesis in Aruba, an island in the Dutch Caribbean. The program involves cooperation with the University of Aruba and is administered and hosted by University College Utrecht (UCU). For ideas about the type of projects that have been carried out previously, see the anthologies of student research projects from Spring 2015, Spring 2016 and Spring 2017

To participate in the programme, students must complete the course UCINTCAR21, Caribbean Studies, offered in the UCU summer term (22 May – 22 June 2018). Interested bachelor students from any faculty can pre-register for the course until 1 March 2018.  Definitive placement will be made known shortly after that date. 

For information about the field research program, you can download the programme's info booklet.

Interested students and their tutors are also invited to view the program’s public Facebook page, which reports on the activities of the current participants.

UCU students can contact their tutor to pre-register for the course. Students from other faculties can contact the program coordinator j.c.ballantyne@uu.nl.
