Computer Science: Computer Science and Education
The specialisation Computer Science and Education is a joint programme offered in collaboration with the Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching (ICLON)). It prepares students for a career as a computer science teacher and results in the teacher qualification (eerstegraads-lesbevoegdheid) required for teaching in Dutch secondary schools. For teaching in bilingual and international schools the World Teachers Programme (WTP) is offered.
In addition to the Computer Science entry requirements proof of Dutch language proficiency is required. Applicants who do not hold a Dutch secondary school diploma (VWO-diploma) will have to take a Dutch language test.
The two-year Computer Science and Education programme consists of:
at least 30 EC of level-500 Specialisation courses and seminars in Computer Science to be selected in correspondence with the chosen topic of the Master's Thesis Research Project in Computer Science (30 EC) and including the mandatory course Psychology of Programming.
a Master's Thesis Research Project in Computer Science (30 EC) in one of the LIACS research groups.
- the Education component (60 EC).
