The Master’s Programme in Education and Child Studies trains students to become academic experts in children’s education, learning and development. The master’s internship is an academic internship. This means that you are expected to use pedagogical knowledge based on results from scientific research together with the analytical attitude you acquired in the course of your bachelor’s and master’s programme in order to prevent or resolve children’s developmental or learning problems.
Conversely, you are also expected to signal potential problems in children’s development and use scientific research into the nature and causes of these problems to contribute to developing evidence based interventions. Whether your internship takes place in practice or at the university, you are still expected to establish the link between scientific pedagogical and educational research and the practice of upbringing and learning.
