Summary

The Master’s specialisation in Science in Society will therefore teach you the skills and knowledge you’ll need to build a bridge between scientific expertise and societal practices. The issues you’ll deal with in the future will probably be connected to your own scientific background. Therefore, you’ll become a biologist, chemist, mathematician, etc. that can reflect on the implications of scientific results and can give advice on how to turn this knowledge into practical use for policymaking or communication purposes. This reflection will not just be scientific; you’ll also learn how to detect the philosophical, political and ethical side of issues. You’ll make scientists familiar with social perceptions as much as you’ll be advising governments and businesses or informing the general public.
