Prospective science students in vast numbers to Master's Open Day

A screaming wind, a dark grey sky and unexpected rainfall. The visitors of the Master's Open Day of the Faculty of Science had a hard time, but nevertheless came en masse to the Gorlaeus Building: about 750 prospective students and supervisors.

Master and Minor

After the opening presentation of former Vice-Dean Han de Winde, the master's programmes gave presentations about their programme, spread over the afternoon. Furthermore, the prospective students were given the opportunity to talk to alumni about their study experiences. In addition, the Minor Market also proved to be a success this edition: many voters looked at the possibilities for broadening or, on the contrary, for extra depth. Finally, six programmes offered lab tours, and there was the opportunity to discover the city and the campus of The Hague with a virtual reality tour.

New Master

Furthermore, the visitors could check out the new master's programme Governance of Sustainability. The Faculty of Science organises this master together with the Faculty Governance and Global Affairs. Governance of Sustainability focuses on students who want to become an intermediary between scientific experts, policy makers and politicians in the domain of sustainability. Students gain in-depth knowledge about sustainability from both the perspective of governance (social sciences) and from the science perspective. The need for these intermediaries was one of the most important reasons for developing this new transdisciplinary Master of Science.
