Tracks: Teacher Degree & Research and development

Do you have solid knowledge in one of the sciences, do you enjoy sharing your knowledge, and would you like to deepen your insight in education and communication processes? Then the Master’s programme in Science Education and Communication may be your choice.

In this programme, you will gain theoretical insights and practical skills in both formal and informal educational practices.

  • Teacher in secondary or higher education
  • Educational design
