So I was busier studying for the exam at the RUG than being able to properly prepare myself. I flew from Amsterdam to Washington DC and landed there with a 2 or 3 hour delay. The arrangement of the visa was very confusing as I got different information from the embassies in Germany and the Netherlands. However, in the end the embassy in Amsterdam arranged it within 10 days and I could pick it up on the same day that I flew to Colombia. Vaccinations: Hepatitis B was one of the vaccinations I renewed before going on my exchange semester as well as Yellow Fever.
I just checked regular recommendation websites for the types of vaccinations I needed. Often called El trio loco. Reception and introduction: Due to my late arrival I missed the reception and introduction and had to manage everything by myself. It was quite confusing and exhausting in the beginning, especially in terms of finding my way around the campus and getting access to literature and syllables for the courses.
Only in the very end I got told about the central platform comparable to Nestor. Here is the link: portal2. The organizers plan sightseeing trips and activities during the weekend for a very reasonable price.
However, I did not spend a lot of time with them. There is also a student gym at the campus and the sports center offers a variety of courses. The offer is not nearly as big as here in Groningen, but the Yoga classes with Salvador are very recommendable. He also offers a collective meditation meeting every Friday in the chapel on the campus. Just talk to him!
However, there is no swimming pool facility, which was a bit disappointing. After all, it is the capital of Colombia! Language: In the beginning, I obviously had a few problems with the language. However, due to the fact that everything was done in Spanish the texts we had to read for university, talking to the professors and co-students, living with Spanish speaking people I quickly improved and got around well.
Grant I received a grant in the total amount of Euros, of which I received Euros before departure and after the return to Groningen. My two- way flight to Colombia and back cost about Euros, while the grant only included Euros financial support for the flight. A regular lunch in a restaurant costs about COP Euros and includes a soup, main course and dessert. In the supermarkets, imported food is quite expensive, while the local food is a little cheaper compared to Dutch prices.
There are a lot of local food markets where bags of food can be bought for 40 cents. I believe that the grant was somewhat sufficient, but could be increased. Due to the expensive flight I had only Euros for the remaining time. Travelling is not as cheap as most people assume- Colombia is one of the more expensive countries in South America.
Domestic flights sometimes can be cheaper than long distance busses. Study general For the duration of the entire semester I had four courses more detailed description below. So instead of having 6 courses in one semester, I only had four courses, which permitted a more extensive research and better understanding of the topics.
Examination took place throughout the semester and differed for every course. For one course we were allowed to take the exam online at a chosen place- so we could take it at home obviously having access to the internet and all lecture slides.
For another course we took the exam in groups of four, being allowed to use all of the texts and our lecture notes during the exam. For the other course we actually had some discussions with the professor on the method of examination, proposed ideas and voted for the way we liked the most. A good organization of the study program seemed to be lacking and I often times did not know what I had to do for the next lesson.
Partly, this was a lack of understanding due to the language but in some cases the requirements were not clear at all due to the lack of information or a central student platform. Ask your fellow students for help in any situation of doubt. Regarding the facilities, the central library is always very crowded just as we know it from the University library in Groningen and also it is not very usual to find a silent spot there.
However, there are other libraries in the different faculties on the campus. I can recommend the library in the faculty of Theology- saves you a lot of frustration. Personally, I did not visit the Exchange Office after the initial formalization of the enrollment. However, they can give you information about activities and facilities.
Other relevant info you want to share with our future exchange students There are so many activities the university offers ranging from volunteer programs, activities with other exchange students to cultural groups. It is very recommendable to ask for example at the exchange office at the very beginning for all the information you need in order to make the most out of your stay.
It can be a bit frustrating in the beginning not for everyone and probably much less if you arrive on time for the introduction! Specific report 1. Lectures and literature The courses I chose were all taught in a group of not more than 30 students, but mainly even smaller. The professors did not teach in big lecture halls like we are used to in Groningen.
Most classes can be compared to the tutorials we know from the RUG, based on a lot of professor- student interaction. I had lectures and seminars on three days per week, from Monday to Wednesday. Two courses were of the faculty of Political Science and two of the faculty of Economics and Business Economics.
Three courses were Spanish taught, while one course was taught in English. Overview of lecture program I did not have a specific timetable for the preparation. Everything was somehow open to changes. Contents Social Innovation: The objective of this course was to discuss Social Innovation as a tool to address the unmet needs of the underprivileged and most help needed part of society.
The underlying assumption is that the government and the state has failed to meet the needs of some with traditional tools and policies and that Social Innovation can fill this gap. Family business: This subject treated the importance of family businesses in Colombia and dealt with common issues inside the family business, succession and general structure.
In the case of Colombia, we discussed whether the case of the mass murdering of the members of the Union Patriotica, the former political movement of the now called FARC, can be called a genocide. The general structure of discussing each genocide took place in terms of the historical background, the underlying ideologies, the perpetrators, the victims and the methods used for the killings.
Introduction to political science : We discussed some of the main classical texts and authors regarding Political Science: Max Weber, Niccolo Macchiaveli, Hannah Ahrendt and more.
The course was structured into four thematic units, where we treated normative issues, empirical analysis, the purpose of politics, political science as a discipline and its history. The different texts on normative issues dealt with politics as an activity linked to power, an activity developed through state institutions and as a permanent fight between enemy and friend.
The empirical analysis dealt with politics as a distributional activity of values for a social order. Lecture-related activities For the course Social Innovation we had to write a paper analysis or were asked to do spontaneous graded group work in class. In the course Family businesses we did some assignments in class and had to prepare a case presentation including all topics treated on a family business.
Relevance to Groningen study program As far as I know, there are unfortunately no related courses to the Family Business, the Social Innovation and the Genocides course. Especially the Social Innovation course was highly important for my own personal growth and knowledge acquirement. It put a very refreshing and alternative perspective on the aims of a normally on growth and accumulation of capital focused business.
We only had one! That is why these courses Social Innovation and Family Business really broadened the perspective of the problematic truth of International Business. The two courses from the Faculty of Political Science did also have a relevance to the study program in Groningen International Business Management because of the importance of politics in business.
Study load The time spent on the course varied from beginning to the end, also depending on the specific class. Social Innovation: Lectures were 3 hours every week and personal preparation time was about 6 hours per week. Family business: Lectures were 3 hours every week and personal preparation time was about 4 hours per week. Genocides of the 20th century: Lectures were 2 hours every week and personal preparation time was about 4 hours per week Introduction to political science: Lectures were 3 hours every week and personal preparation time was about 8 hours per week in the beginning, but less in the end due to better understanding of the Spanish texts.

2.4 Gabriel a. Almond, Una Disciplina Segmentada
This article analyzes the constitution of the area of studies on the history and development of political science in Latin America over the past ten years. Several studies have been proposed to account for this process showing the growth of the discipline in the region. In this paper we will highlight the main actors and their scientific and academic production, as well as the processes of institutionalization and professionalization of political science. This article aims to classify these studies from the early exploratory approaches up to the production of more sofisticated descriptive works, from a comparative perspective, in order to finally arrive at the new current trends that attempt to perform a "metatheoretical" approach with contributions from epistemology, sociology of knowledge and the history of the science.
