Structure of the programme

Areas of Qualification

You can earn the certificate in one of three special areas (specialist) or you can acquire basic knowledge in all three special areas (generalist). The three special areas are writing, speaking and (digital) presenting.

Examples for Writing:

  • Articles in popular science books
  • Press releases
  • Others

 

Examples for Speaking:

  • Presentations at the CAU Science Show
  • Contributions to science slams
  • Lectures for the SHUG
  • Interview for non-academics
  • Others

 

Examples for (Digital) Presenting:

  • Blogs
  • MOOCs
  • Poster
  • Exhibitions
  • Others

 

The basic elements (B) include theory, methods and the reflection on the role of the researcher and the science communicator.

The advanced elements (A) are events for specializing in one of the three areas of speaking, writing and (digital) presenting.

A list of all Graduate Center events can be found here. A special note in the course announcements identifies the courses that can be credited for the certificate programme.

 

Example for the structure of a certificate programme:

  • 48 WU Speaking (B) & 48 WU Writing (B) & 48 WU Presenting (B) = 144 WU/full hours or 18 course days
  • A combination of B/A/A with two different special areas is also possible, e.g.: 48 WU Speaking (B) & 48 WU Speaking (A) & 48 WU Speaking (V) = 144 WU/full hours or 18 course days

 

After you have collected credits to the amount of 18 course days or 144 WU/full hours you perform an end-of-course assessment (see sequence of the programme) and have a reflective conversation. Subsequently you will receive your certificate.

If you have any questions please contact   Dr. Sabine Milde.
