Science Communication & Society
The research group Science Communication and Society aims to understand how science communication works to improve the interaction between science and society. Central themes are ‘Bridging the gap between experts and the general public’ and ‘Evaluating Science Communication’.
Our master’s specialisation enables students to bring together their field of science and society, which is important, especially in today's society. The SCS specialisation can be combined with many of the master programmes at the Science Faculty, as well as Biomedical Sciences. Our courses train students in practical and theoretical aspects of science communication. Internships allow students to put their knowledge obtained during the courses in practice and can inspire them to choose a career in science communication or to become a scientist that also knows how to communicate about their research.
