specialisaties

specialisatie Research in Chemistry



The Research in Chemistry master's specialisation has a fundamental approach to finding tailor-made solutions for human health and environmental problems. The research is focused on two major research areas:

  • Chemical Biology: within this research area you will study fundamental biological and biomedical problems, to understand physiological processes at the molecular level and to gather more knowledge on human health and illnesses.
  • Energy & Sustainability: within this research area you will focus on the development of new sources of sustainable energy and the use of storage of energy. For example, you will be working on the development of a new generation of catalysts for the production of solar fuels.

The master's specialisation Research in Chemistry is an excellent choice if you want to pursue a career in chemistry research. The Master of Science programme guarantees thorough research training founded on a profound theoretical basis. More in general, Research in Chemistry is the best choice if you have the aspiration to pursue a PhD degree.

specialisatie Chemistry and Science-Based Business



Business Studies bridges science and business by focusing on areas such as technology management, innovation, entrepreneurship, operations and decision-making. In this master's specialisation you combine chemistry research with Science Based Business. You will learn about analytical frameworks and skills for managerial decision-making. The emphasis of the business specialisation is on the application of these frameworks and skills in the context of R&D-intensive organisations. After completion, you have obtained the necessary knowledge and skills to take on managerial responsibilities in your work.

Do you pursue a management career in industry from a chemistry research perspective? Do you want to learn all about technology commercialization and business development? Then, Chemistry and Business Studies is the master's specialisation of choice for you. It enables you to broaden your scope outside chemistry research. The specialisation offers training that is analytically rigorous and connected to practice through class discussions based on real-life business cases, company visits, guest speakers, and an internship experience.

specialisatie Chemistry and Science Communication and Society



Increasingly, the general public wants to be and needs to be informed about scientific topics. At the same time, scientists need to show accountability to the general public about their research. In this specialisation you bridge the gap between experts and the public by combining high quality research in chemistry with extensive training in science communication. After completion you have obtained the necessary knowledge and skills to either become science communicator with a strong chemistry background, or a researcher with a communicating mindset.

Do you want to bridge the gap between scientific research and the public? Want to combine high quality chemistry research with professional science communication? Then, this master's specialisation is an excellent opportunity for you. You will be prepared for a career as a science or health communicator, policy maker, PR officer, science journalist, health officer, museum educator or a researcher with a communicating mindset.

specialisatie Chemistry and Education



Chemistry and Education optimally prepares you to teach the subject of chemistry to secondary school students, based on a solid background of high quality research in chemistry. The programme comprises a one-year chemistry component, followed by an education component in the second year. This master's specialisation uniquely enables you to make a relevant impact on society by educating today's secondary school pupils for tomorrow's challenges in the field of chemistry.

Do you want to fascinate our younger generations for the field of chemistry? Are you aiming for a career as a modern and flexible teacher? Then, the Chemistry and Education master's specialisation is the right choice for you. After completion, you will have obtained your teacher qualification, which is required for employment as a chemistry teacher in Dutch secondary schools. You can also participate in the World Teachers Programme for international teaching. As the main education component is taught in Dutch, all applicants must provide proof of proficiency in Dutch language.
