Do you want to combine humane biology with molecular biology? Or do you want to learn about the other possibilities of biomedical sciences after a year of research? This master's programme will offer you just that!
While pursuing a Masterís degree in Biomedical Sciences from VU University Amsterdam you can opt to study a combination of different specializations. The research-oriented specializations will enable you to embark on a career in research. The societal specialization will equip you for a position as a policy officer. The communication specialization will enable you to work in public relations or scientific journalism, and the education specialization (only in Dutch) will enable you to teach at pre-university or higher vocational education level.
Are you interested in infectious diseases and do you want to gain a deeper understanding of how the immune system works? Then you can focus on both these specializations. Does your scientific interest lie in immunology and your professional ambition in policy-making? Then you can combine these two. You can tailor your programme according to your own desires and interests.
Your job prospects are excellent with a Masterís degree in Biomedical Sciences. Most of our graduates enter scientific research. If you take the Science in Society specialization, it is more likely that you will find work involving policy-making. Taking the Education specialization almost certainly means you will go into teaching. And the Communications specialization opens up opportunities as a scientific journalist, press officer or education officer.
