Programme of Science in Society
We are working on solutions for hybrid education that will take place online and on campus. Therefore the instructional modes, number of exams, the form of the exams and/or assignments may change. You will be informed through Brightspace in case of changes. The course information in the Course guide provides an indication of what you can expect in the course.
In the case of not being able to attend one or more practical courses/lab days due to corona measures, the course coordinator will decide if the student is obligated to re-take the missed meeting and how this will take place.
Please note that this master's programme is no longer available for new students. New master's students can start the new programme of Molecular Sciences.
The content of the Science in Society (SiS) is described in a separate prospectus. The Molecular Life Sciences 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; This part needs approval from the examination board. All courses offered by the Faculty of Science will be approved, with the exception of courses offered within the Science, Management and Innovation or Science in Society specialisations.
B. NWI-MOL501A Research project of minimally 29 EC, including practical work, report, presentation (min. 23 EC), and optionally specialisation courses relevant to the internship (max. 6 EC); This research project can be done on any research department from the list of internships open to MLS.
C. NWI-MOL412 Career orientation (1 EC)
D. Philosophy course (3 EC)
E. 9 EC Electives, courses (A), an extension of the research project (B), or both;
F. 3 EC Free electives.
Besides the 60 EC Molecular Life Sciences specific programme, your second year comprises of 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.
