Master programme

The two-year Master programme Science Education and Communication prepares students for career choices such as: teacher (biology, chemistry, physics, information technology); designer of educational websites; designer of exhibitions in science museums; or researcher and designer of science education.

For more information, visit the Utrecht University Master selection site. Current SEC students can find detailed information about the programme on this website.

For students from other science research Masters two specialization profiles are available: a Communication and Education Profile and an Education Profile

Communication & Education Profile

The Communication & Education (CE) Profile offers students the opportunity to focus on science communication and education within the context of their science research Master for six months.

(Top) researchers are expected to be able to make their field of study accessible and understandable to a wide variety of audiences. The CE Profile responds to this expectation, giving students the opportunity to develop their communicative and educative skills.

For more information please read the flyer (pdf).

Educational Profile

Within the Master programmes of the Graduate School of Natural Sciences it is now possible to obtain a second degree teaching certificate in 30 EC via the Educational Profile. For those students who already have obtained their second degree teaching certificate through an ‘educational minor’ in their bachelor studies, this Educational Profile will lead to a first degree teaching certificate.
