1. relatively independently develop a product in the field of science communication that matches its target group and communication aims or to make a contribution in the field of science communication for a professional organization
2. demonstrate the basic skills that are necessary to work in or for a professional organization in the field of science communication
3. reflect on the client organization and its position in the field of science communication, incl. scientific and professional integrity

Omschrijving The Science Communication Internship aims to prepare students for the professional practice of science communication. The internship must broaden or deepen the knowledge acquired in previous course units and must differ from the External Science Communication Project.
The initiative for an internship proposal can come from either the student or a lecturer. A final internship proposal will be approved by two core lecturers when it has a sufficient academic level (independent implementation, learning effects, etc.). Whether or not
students have sufficient qualifications to implement the internship will also be checked. A prerequisite is that supervision from within the team of lecturers must be possible.
The supervision is in the hands of two lecturers, one of whom will do the daily supervision. One of these lecturers may be from a different degree programme.
