Our department is involved in several Bachelor's and Master's programmes. We also provide the general didactic component in all grade-one teacher training programmes at Utrecht University. In this, we work closely with other faculties that provide the subject-related component. In addition, we offer the education minors that lead to the grade-two teaching qualification, in cooperation with other faculties.
