Archaeology student Jan Dekker receives two Honours Academy certificates
On Thursday November 14, the Honours Academy organized its yearly ceremony in order to award the 2019 honours certificates in the Hooglandse Kerk in Leiden. Archaeology student Jan Dekker received not one, but two certificates, for successfully completing both the honours track ‘Crossing the Borders in World Archaeology’ of the Faculty of Archaeology as well as the Sciences honours track.
Honours certificates are awarded to students who successfully follow one of the honours tracks offered by Leiden University. The honours track ‘Crossing the Borders in World Archaeology’ involves an extra-curricular program of 30 EC which aims to broaden and deepen the study of archaeology and to provide extra and flexible opportunities to explore personal interests.
The students have followed an Orienting Seminar, which is a lecture and discussion series by archaeologists with different specialisations, for which they have created scientific posters which they have presented during the Dutch national archaeology congress (Reuvensdagen). In addition, they have followed an in-depth theoretical seminar, they have participated in one of the current research projects of the Faculty of Archaeology and they have been actively involved in an internship bringing archaeology to the larger public. Finally, according to their own interests, they have followed courses at the Leiden University College, honours classes which are organized by all faculties or international summer schools on a broad range of topics.
