About the programme

The specialisation combines one year of Chemistry (60 - 80 EC) with one year of science communication courses, internships and research (40-60 EC).

Programme overview

If you choose SCS  you need to follow the SCS programme (40-60 EC) and therefore will have a reduced Chemistry programme, which consists of compulsory chemistry components (60 EC) and electives (max 20 EC). The compulsory chemistry components in this specialisation comprises a research training project (30 EC), four core courses to be selected  from one of the two research areas Chemical Biology or Energy & Sustainability (24 EC), and a course related to academic training (6 EC). The science communication component of the specialisation includes coursework, internship(s) and a science communication research project.
