CIVIS micro-programmes

CIVIS micro-programmes allow students to combine multiple CIVIS courses or modules into one coherent learning pathway which reinforces or complements their main study programme. By choosing a micro-programme, you can build your own curriculum and follow your own interests, deepening your knowledge in one of the five CIVIS areas or going broader with transdisciplinary options. The programmes are organized for students at all levels (Bachelor, Master, or Doctoral), so you are sure to find the opportunity that fits!

Science, Technology, Society: Green Innovation, Inclusive Digitalization, Ethical Biomedicalization
