Programme of Science and Education
Science and Education for Biology
The Master's specialisation in Science and Education consists of two years.
During your first year, you follow courses and electives that are specific to the master's programme you've enrolled in.
Please note that the Science and Education part of the programme is taught in Dutch, as it prepares you for teaching on Dutch secondary schools!
The programme consists of the following elements from the master Biology:
a. Courses in Biology (15 EC)
You have to follow a set of courses that match the compulsory courses for one of the thematic specialisations:
- Adaptive Organisms
- Communities and Ecosystems
- Water and Environment
- Microbiology (choose 15 of the 18 EC)
b. Science internship (30 EC)
Your science internship has to be done under supervision of one of the examinators of the IWWR, with one of the following chairs:
- Animal Ecology and Ecophysiology
- Aquatic Ecology and Environmental Biology
- Environmental Science
- Experimental Plant Ecology
- Ecological Microbiology
- Molecular Interaction Ecology
- Molecular Plant Physiology
- Organismal Animal Physiology
- Mechanisms of Inflammatory Diseases
- Medical Microbiology
- Medical Immunology
c. Thesis (6 EC)
d. Master Portfolio Biosciences (0 EC)
e. Philosophy course (3 EC)
f. Free elective (6 EC)
The courses and activities that are specific for this Master's specialisation, are offered by the "Radboud Docenten Academie - RDA".
The programme they offer is intensive and does not leave room for other -(medical) biology- courses.
