Participation in the Honours College Track Archaeology.
In this module, the participating Honours College students attend a series of guest lectures (once every 2 weeks) about a relevant archaeological theme.
The idea is to focus more on the theoretical aspects of the chosen theme, to discuss them and incorporate them in a reflective paper. The participating students are divided into teams and instructed to choose a sub-theme within the main theme, draw up a bibliography about this theme, study these texts and convert this into a paper in English. This paper will eventually be presented at the end of block 3.
Insight into a current theoretical theme in archaeology;
Learn to express theoretical concepts and defend theoretical opinions, both verbally and in writing;
Present a theoretical discussion;
Write an academic paper.
Mode of instruction
The course load will be distributed as follows:

+/- 250 pages of literature;
To be handed out during class.
