The Master’s specialisation in Physics and 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.
The 2-year programme, which is fully taught in English, consists of an Physics component, to be followed in the first year, and a Science Communication and Society component, to be followed in the second year.
Students who follow the Physics and SCS specialisation have an excellent opportunity to broaden their studies outside their own discipline, and, during the internship, are able to get a taste of working as a scientific communicator.
The communication skills you develop are valuable if you would like to pursue a scientific career, for example as PhD in Physics. The Master’s degree in Physics and SCS also gives access to doctoral programmes in Physics.
