“Active citizenship” as an element of the politics course is a practical as well as a theoretical issue. This module offers students a key learning opportunity to learn and practice the skills of active citizenship in a real-life environment, as well as a chance to develop their future career. In this module, students engage in a practice placement organized either by themselves or by the placement coordinator. This entails part-time work in the political world, typically in the field of “active citizenship” (e.g. in an NGO, a community group, the local branch of a political party, a newsletter, a grassroots campaign, or other group or organization as agreed with the placement coordinator). This placement is supported by a regular workshop and the maintenance of a learning journal.
