Programme of Science in Society
The content of the specialisation year in Science in Society (SiS) is described in a separate prospectus. The Chemistry specific part is outlined here and consists of the following components totaling 60 EC to be done in the first year:
A. A minimum of 15 EC scientific Master courses, to be approved by the Examination Board. Master courses at the Faculty of Science are automatically approved, with the exception of courses offered within the societal specialisations (SMI and SIS);
B. A research project of minimally 29 EC (NWI-MOL501A), including practical work, report, presentation, and optional specialisation courses relevant to the internship (max. 6 EC);
This research project can be done on any research department available to Chemistry student.
E. 9 EC Electives, either courses (A), a longer research project (B), or a literature thesis (NWI-MOL601, 6 EC), or a combination of the above.
The second year comprises a 60 EC programme from Science in Society. In this programme there is also a 3 EC free elective component. Both free elective components can be combined to follow a 6 EC course.
