Physics and Science Communication and Society (MSc)

Programme structure

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

Programme outline

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

  • Physics component (60 – 80 EC)
  • Science communication and Society component (40 – 60 EC)

The 2-year programme consists of a Physics component, to be followed in the first year, and a Science Communication and Society component, followed in the second year. The Physics component of the SCS specialisation includes mandatory courses (15 EC), a research project (36 EC) and electives (9 EC). The science communication component of the specialisation includes coursework, internship(s) and research proposal.

Preferably, you follow the Physics component during the first year of the programme and the SCS component during the second year.
