Studying Science Education and Communication
The master Science Education and Communication (SEC) is a two-year master program at Delft University of Technology. The master SEC consists of two tracks: an education and a communication track.
The Education track educates the students to become a teacher in one of four subjects in upper secondary education: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or Computer Science. Students learn to become teachers in upper secondary education, with a thorough knowledge of the field as well as didactic competencies. They will be able to teach in the higher HAVO and VWO classes.
The Science Communication track educates the students to be a science communication specialist. Students develop the skills needed to be in a position to facilitate dialogue and effective knowledge transfer between scientists and key players in industry, government and society. Science Communication can be combined with other MSc-programmes into one double degree program.
More information about the content of the program and the career possibilities can be found on the SEC website of the TU Delft. You are also welcome to drop by at InterSECtion office if you have more questions. For a detailed overview of the content of the program, please refer to the online study guide.

During the education all SEC students have to do an internship which gives you practical experience. The Science Education internship consists of teaching on a high school. For the Science Communication internship there are endless possibilities, but we distinguish between three types of internships:
- Experience Internship
- Research Internship
- Advisory Internship
