  • Multicultural Learning
    Rhine-Waal is one of Europe's most international public universities. More than 20 buildings, contructed over the past seven years, comprise two highly modern campuses. Kleve Castle in the background of the picture. Living-expenses in the comparatively rural area are significantly lower than in cities such as Cologne or Munich, and roughly half of those in London or Paris.
  • Our Project Partners
    Our work is guided by a trans-cultural, comparative approach. We are particularly interested in the global diversity of science communication and therefore try to learn from collaborating in projects with more than 90 different institutions worldwide. The department also contributes to networks such as PCST, RedPOP, and EASST.
  • Research-led Teaching
    Our degree programme follows a research-led, project-driven approach in order to integrate practice and theory. Social science methods and their application in e.g. evaluation, are at the heart of our programme. Many students actively contribute as paid assistants to our international research projects. Regular field trips link teaching and practice. In the picture: Prof. Eric Jensen in one of our open-air sessions.
  • Evidence-based SciComm
    Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation in picturesque Bellagio, Italy, we could invite 22 thought leaders in Science Communication from all continents, Asia and Africa, Europe, Oceania and the Americas. The summit on "Evidence-based Science Communication" set new directions for the field which have led to an initiative to bring scholarship and practice closer together.
