The Faculty of Science offers certificates to graduating students which formally acknowledge that students have studied particular themes. These themes can be concentrations within a discipline, or subjects that cross interdisciplinary boundaries.
Normally the requirements for the certificates can be completed as part of the requirements for the degree; however, in some cases, a student may need to take more than the minimum required for his or her degree program in order to qualify for both the degree and the certificate. The following certificates are available:
