Some student quotes of our extended master
‘What I particularly liked about my
traineeship was learning from the people
who have so much knowledge and
experience already. I always wondered
where sociologist would end up working
after their studies, but I finally found the
answer’
~Iris Bakker, 2014, Movisie
When looking back, I think it would fit
me more if I would have been
working at a research institute that
does commissioned work.
~Jolien Greven, 2014, Yes! Project
Utrecht University
I can conclude that this past year
has been very instructive to me.
I’ve learned about my
weaknesses but also about my
strengths and abilities both as an
individual and professional…….I
am thankful for this experience
and …I would recommend it to
every graduating student’
~Jessica Villamil, 2013,

Editor's Notes

  1. Your predecessors were very enthusiastic and each year few students were offered jobs at the organizations were they had their internship. So it can be very lucrative for you (no guarantees though)! The internship is an excellent way to apply the learned theories, methodological knowledge and skills into practice and to get an idea of the work you as a sociologist can get involved in.
  2. Welke beroepen kun je uitoefenen met Sociologie, wat kun je worden? Aan de zaal vragen wat ze verwachten te gaan doen als Sociologie. Heeft de zaal daar al ideeën over?
