Program description

The Master in civics: education and communication teaches to gather thorough and in-depth knowledge of the social sciences. You will also learn how you can bring knowledge and insights into the educational practice. You will be trained to teach the teacher and to link theory to practice. This program is especially interesting for students pursuing a career in international or bilingual education.

This two-year program is offered by the Faculty of Social Sciences and the IVLOS. In the first year you will focus on professional teaching and you will deepen your knowledge in the field of cultural anthropology, sociology or general social sciences. In the second year you will be taking educational courses at the IVLOS. You will attend teacher training courses and learn about different learning and teaching methods. There is a strong link between theory and practice, because you run multiple internships at various high schools.
