Programme of Science and Education
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 following Biology-specific components are part of the programme when you take the Master's specialisation in Science and Education within the Master's in 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
- Conservation and Restoration Ecology
- Water and Environment
- Microbiology (choose 15 of the 18 EC)
b. Science internship: NWI-BM-STAGEE1 (30EC)
Your science internship has to be done under supervision of one of the examinators of the RIBES (Radboud Institute for Biological and Environmental Sciences), 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. Review article - NWI-BM-REVIEWART (6 EC)
Review article can be replaced by Field Course Alpine Ecology (NWI-BM040B)
OR Field Course (NWI-BM048B)
(NB: both field courses are offered in alternating years)
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.
