How does the world of science connect with the worlds of education and society? How do teachers bridge science and education? How is science and its processes communicated in the media? What is the role of informal institutions in shaping the public's understanding of science?
If you are interested in these questions then this programme is for you! We aim to bridge the gap between those who know science, those who teach science, and those who communicate science. The programme builds upon an international network of existing institutional links, teaching and research experience, and a well-established Master's degree program offered in Dutch for the past 14 years. The international programme will provide you with a solid foundation in the science, theory, and practice of innovative teaching and effective communication in science and mathematics.
The Master's degree programme in Mathematics and Science Education and Communication is a flexible, two-year program, with two tracks you can choose from: Education and Communication. Both tracks are based on a highly interactive and interdisciplinary global curriculum that integrates theory, research, and practice through a series of contemporary courses and internships.
