The master’s programmes Chemistry and LST each offer four specialisations. The two-year programme consists of 120 EC. The table below gives an overview of the division of EC points between the different components of the programme.
The four specialisations are:
Research: work in one of the research themes to become an independent and creative scientist.
Education (taught partly in Dutch): prepare for a career in teaching secondary education.
Science Communication and Society (taught partly in Dutch): combine research with programmes in different aspects of science communication, such as journalism.
Business Studies: combine training in chemistry or life science with learning about business and entrepreneurship.
Each specialisation consists of five components:
Research training Academic skills: all students follow two courses on academic skills: Academic Writing (AWR) (2 EC) and Science Methodology (SCM) (4 EC).
