Course Content

All the modules in this one year programme are compulsory. The programme consists of a total of 90 credits made up of one 30 credit module and four 15 credit modules. An additional English module (English for Academic Purposes) will be offered for non-native English speakers if required. This module will not form part of the overall award, but successful completion is required for progression to the Masters programme.

Modules:
- Biomedical Science and Pathology (30 credits):
The module provides the student with the knowledge and understanding of the pathobiology of human disease associated with Cellular Pathology, Clinical Immunology, Haematology, Clinical Biochemistry, Medical Microbiology and Clinical Virology. It also examines the analytical and clinical functions of three more of the major departments of a modern hospital pathology laboratory, including Haematology, Clinical Pathology, Clinical Immunology, Blood Transfusion, Clinical Biochemistry and Medical Microbiology. In addition, the module will give an accurate insight into the role of Biomedical Scientists and how they assist clinicians in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of disease.

- Biochemistry Research Project (non-experimental) (15 credits):
This module aims to introduce students to some of the key non-experimental research skills that are routinely used by biochemists and biomedical scientists, such as in depth literature searching, analysis of experimental data and the use of a computer as tool for both research (bioinformatics) and dissemination of information (web page construction). The student will research the literature on a specific topic, using library and web based resources and will produce a written review. In addition, the student will either process and interpret some raw experimental data provided to them.

- Advances in Medicine (15 credits):
This module will describe and promote the understanding of advances in medicine that have impacted on diagnosis, treatment, prevention of a range of diseases. It will highlight fast emerging areas of research which are striving to improve diagnosis including nanotechnology and new biochemical tests in the fields of heart disease, cancer and fertility investigations which will potentially improve patient care.

- Clinical Pathology (15 credits):
The majority of staff that contribute to the module are employees of the University Hospital of North Staffordshire (UHNS). Students will benefit from lectures and expertise in Clinical Diagnostic Pathology, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Genetics and Inflammatory Diseases. Students will gain an insight into how patients are managed, from their very first presentation at the UHNS, from the perspective of diagnosis and treatment. The course will cover both standardised testing options and the development of new diagnostic procedures with a particular emphasis on genetic and epigenetic aspects of disease. Students will also gain an appreciation of the cost benefit of particular routes for diagnosis and treatment and the importance of identifying false positive and false negative results. Finally, the students will have the opportunity to perform their own extensive literature review of a disease-related topic that is not covered by the lectures on the course.

- Case Studies in Biomedical Science (15 credits):
This module aims to give you an understanding of the UK health trends and the factors that affect these trends. Through clinical case studies and small group tutorials, you will explore why the UK has some of the highest incidences of certain diseases and conditions in Europe and consider what factors contribute to making them some of the most common and/or rising health problems faced by this country. This will include understanding the relevant socioeconomic factors as well as understanding the bioscience of the disease process and its diagnosis and management. You will also focus on what is being done by Government and the NHS to tackle these major health problems.

- English for Academic Purposes (EAP ):
For non-native English speakers if required

Teaching & Assessment

In addition to the lecture courses and tutorials, problem based learning (PBL) using clinical scenarios is used for at least one module. Students will also be given the opportunity to undertake an independent non-experimental research project, supervised and supported by a member of staff. Web-based learning using the University’s virtual learning environment (KLE) is also used to give students easy access to a wide range of resources and research tools, and as a platform for online discussions and quizzes. Students will be given many opportunities to become familiar with word processing, spreadsheets and graphics software as well as computer-based routes to access scientific literature.

All modules are assessed within the semester in which they are taught. Most contain elements of both ‘in-course’ assessment (in the form of laboratory reports, essays, posters) and formal examination, although some are examined by ‘in-course’ assessment alone.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines we do not anticipate any additional costs for this post graduate programme.

Overview

Becoming an expert designer and coordinator of information systems projects, with knowledge in data analysis and cyber law, and thus enabling you to take a leading role when tackling any ICT project.

There is hardly a company in the world that doesn’t use ICT in some shape or form and many of them face problems in getting ICT to do what it’s supposed to do. So they turn to ICT technicians for advice. However, more often than not, technical problems are only the tip of the iceberg, and a broader perspective is needed to understand and solve them. Radboud University’s Master’s programme in Information Sciences will teach you to become a digital architect who can look beyond mere technical sides to ICT adoption and assist in designing competitive business solutions.

We’ll teach you the broad theoretical foundations you’ll need to understand the technological aspect of any ICT project that may come your way and we’ll help you look beyond technological concerns when tackling ICT-related problems in practice. Radboud University is well known in the field of information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems.

There is a large demand for well-trained information experts who can help implement sound, secure, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate, as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/toxicology

Why study Information Sciences at Radboud University?

- Data analysis, privacy and cyber law are the essential components of modern ICT. Radboud University is unique in offering this combination within the field of Information Sciences.
- This programme offers a good mix: forming a solid technical, organisational and legal foundation, getting hands-on experience and developing the insights needed to take a leading role in successful change programmes with active engagement from both technical savvy people and those unfamiliar with the field.
- The field of Information Sciences has the highest chance of finding employment and graduates are offered some of the highest salary for starter position in the Netherlands.
- The second half of your programme offers the possibility of an internship, which in this field is paid and can contribute to financing your Master’s study. We have close contacts with the private sector which can help you to find your own internship position.
- Electives enable you in fine-tuning the focus of this specialisation to meet your own academic and professional interests.
- You will be taught by top researchers and ICT experts of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS), which was ranked first in the latest national research assessment.
- Some graduates even start their own businesses, something that the Mercator Incubator right here in Nijmegen could help you with.

Technical and management students

This programme is suited for both students with a technological background with management ambitions, as those with a management background and a strong affinity with technology wanting to specialise in ICT. As the programme is a technological programme we do expect the management students to have taken a minor in Information Sciences during their Bachelor’s study, or they will need to take a half-year pre-Master’s programme before being admitted

Our approach to this field

At Radboud University, we believe that a good information specialist is more than an expert in information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems. They form the bridge between the people involved. You’ll therefore need to learn to work together with different stakeholders within a project, for example, the super technical programmer, the demanding client and, in some cases, the computer illiterate user. You’ll need to be able represent all their interests and find a solution that’s satisfactory to all. By the end of the programme you’ll be a well-trained digital architect with the necessary managerial skills.

Radboud University's information specialists also work closely with colleagues from other disciplines, such as law, medicine, brain research, and artificial intelligence. Because information systems have a wide application, this Master’s programme shows you how to look beyond the borders of your own discipline. And the annual study trips in the elective ICT in a Different Culture – to countries such as India, Brazil, and South Africa – will also enable you to extend your own boundaries.

Career prospects

There is a big demand for highly trained information experts who can apply good, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate. Most go into industry, banking and insurance, or to public-sector organisations such as schools and hospitals.

Students with this Master’s could think of positions as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists. And more companies are adding the position of Chief Information Officer (CIO) to their board of directors. This Master’s programme is definitely a good stepping stone to reaching this kind of position in your future career.

- Your own company
Some students develop their own ideas and innovations while taking part in this Master’s. They see what’s on offer, understand what’s lacking and realise where the possibilities lie. In Nijmegen there are plenty of opportunities for those wanting to start their own business. For example, the Mercator Incubator could help those with a good business plan with advice or even by offering affordable accommodation and other facilities for the first year or two of setting up a company.

Specialisations

- Global Ethnography
- Sociology of Policy in Practice

Visit the website: http://en.mastersinleiden.nl/programmes/cultural-anthropology-and-development-sociology/en/introduction

Course detail

In this master’s programme you will learn to understand the everyday practice of individuals, groups and communities from the inside out, and analyse how you can situate them within complex processes of global social change.

The programme at Leiden is tailor-made, displays a broad range of theoretical, methodological and regional interests, and is renowned for its internationally oriented expertise and the two unique specialisations:

1. Global Ethnography

Our globalising world increasingly demands a comparative and holistic approach to all things cultural. In the specialisation Global Ethnography you will do three months of individual research into the ways global processes manifest themselves in particular and local instances, in remote places as well as close to home.

2. Sociology of Policy in Practice

Our specialisation in the sociology of policy in practice teaches you to think along with companies, NGO’s and other organisations to help them respond to the challenges they are facing in our rapidly changing times. You obtain relevant working experience by conducting a three-month research-oriented internship, in close collaboration with both our Leiden staff and members of your host organisation.

Field schools in Asia, Africa and the Netherlands

The Leiden Institute of CA-DS ensures half a century and more of expertise on South-East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. As a student, you can enjoy the possibilities of this wide network of international contacts and conduct your own research in one of our field schools abroad, located in Indonesia (Java) or Ghana, or in the Netherlands. For more information check our webpage on the Field schools.

Master students are not strictly limited to these regions and field schools. If you have sufficient expertise, local contacts and linguistic skills, it is possible to focus on another region and do your fieldwork there. You can contact the institute’s coordinator and discuss the feasibility of your research plans.

Visual Ethnography as a Method

All specialisations can be combined with the methodological track ‘Visual Ethnography as a Method’ Although admission to this track requires certain minimal skills in visual ethnography (which can be obtained at the Institute CA-DS in the pre-master phase), you will be able to improve your use of audio-visual methods like photography, video and audio, both in research and in reporting through course work and your own independent research project.

Career prospects

As a CA-DS master, you will be fully equipped with the scientific skills required to independently design and execute fundamental and applied research.
