My name is Constantijn van den Hoorn, and I’m a
second-year Bachelor’s student of American Studies. After
completing senior general secondary education, I decided I wanted
to get my propaedeutic certificate as quickly as possible at a
university of applied sciences, in order to then transfer to a
university to study my dream programme: American Studies. My
biggest hobby is writing, so I write for The American
, published by the E Pluribus Unum study
association. I have a passion for everything to do with America,
from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Hillary Rodham Clinton. I follow
American politics and watch C-SPAN in my spare time.
Why American Studies
American Studies matches my interests precisely. For years
I’ve been fascinated by American history, the country’s
politics circus and its wider culture. The best TV series and films
come from America, and it's always fascinating to see the influence
the United States has on the rest of the world. I grasp every
opportunity I get to travel to America, and my love for the country
even resulted in my living in Hollywood for a couple of months at
one point. American Studies gives you the opportunity to study the
entire American continent and to examine events critically, as well
as teaching you to construct sound arguments.
