Study programme

The two-year programme is divided into four semesters. The curriculum comprises three major components:

  • theoretical models and advanced theoretical topics;
  • advanced research methods (both quantitative and qualitative);
  • the preparation of a Master's thesis.

EdSci combines high-level coursework with hands-on research skill and competence development.

Throughout the programme, various electronic learning environments are used to support you in collaborative study assignments, and to allow you to experiment with these innovative learning and instruction tools.

The courses have an intensive format with written (research) assignments, class presentations, final papers, written exams, or short exercises. For each course a course manual is available in the electronic learning environment Blackboard. In these manuals you will find more detailed information about the content, aims and structure of the course.
