Biology and Science Communication and Society (MSc)

Programme structure

The SCS courses train you in practical and theoretical aspects of science communications. Internships help you decide whether you want to choose a career in science communication or Biology research.

Programme outline

The entire MSc programme in combination with the Science Communication and Society (SCS) specialisation consists of two components:

  • Biology component (60 – 80 EC)
  • Science Communication and Society component (40 – 60 EC)

The Biology component can be extended with an additional 20 EC (courses or extension of the research project to 80 EC in total). The research project has to take place in one of the research groups of the IBL, CML or Naturalis, other Institutes of the Faculty of Sciences or LUMC.

The science communication component of the specialisation includes coursework, internship(s) and research proposal.

You follow the Biology component during the first year of the programme and the Science Communication and Society component during the second year.
