Major Science in Society


This is the website of students and teachers from the Major Science in Society (SiS). The major is a collaboration between Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Universiteit van Amsterdam.

The Science in Society major is an innovative trans-disciplinary academic track (60 EC) that prepares students for working as, for instance, consultants, policy-makers, (academic) researchers or entrepreneurs at the interface of science, technology and society. It provides tools and strategies for understanding and approaching complex societal problems related to scientific and technological development, and is open to students from all two-year master programmes at the Faculties of Science of UvA and VU.

The Major Science in Society has welcomed students from MSc programmes such as Biomedical sciences, Earth sciences, Health and Life Sciences, Physics & astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, DDS and many more.

After completing the Major, you earn a regular Master of Science (MSc) degree in your current field, with the Major as specialisation.
