Description of Science Education and Communication

If you are broadly interested in science, and feel an urge to understand the social significance of your field of expertise, then it is worth looking at the details of this programme.

If you want to obtain a teacher degree, your internship will be at school. For other students, the internship could also be in informal educational settings, such as a science museum. Dependent on your specific choices, you may also earn a first-degree teacher qualification in one of the sciences (mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, computer science or astronomy). As a graduate of this programme, your job perspectives may include science and mathematics teacher, educational researcher, staff member at a science museum, or communication advisor at a public health institution. There is a strong need in society for such professionals who can bridge the gap between science and the public, both in formal education, and in informal settings.
