As of September 2017, the current Biology specialisations will be reorganised into the following four (more discipline-oriented) specialisations:
Students starting per February 2017 should enroll still in the current specialisations and will follow the full two year program as presented on this website and in the e prospectus.
The master’s specialisation Biology and Science, Communication and Society combines research training in biology with an education in communication.
The specialisation Science Communication and Society concerns science communication in a broad sense. The programme prepares students for a career in popularisation of science, for example, as a science communicator, a science policymaker or a public relations or health communication officer, or for a career as a scientist with a communicating mind-set. For future science teachers the specialisation is also a valuable preparation.
