Science, Environment and Society

At the Department of Science, Environment and Society we educate science teachers at all levels, from pre-school to upper secondary school. We offer courses in mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry, technology and geography as integrated parts of degree programmes or as individual courses. All courses focuses on science connected to learning processes.

Education

Research has shown that generally the introduction of science and technology is being made far too late in children’s education. Our goal is to educate teachers who will inspire children from an early age to develop a lifelong fascination with science.

The subjects are:

  • Mathematics and Learning
  • Sciences and Learning
  • Geography, Environment and Learning

Research

The department is conducting research into science education at pre-school and primary school levels and teacher education. The research is trying to understand education, learning and knowledge from different cultural, social and practical perspectives. The research group is transdisciplinary and consists of researchers from backgrounds in science of education, mathematics, pedagogy, biology, physics, chemistry and ethnology.

Doctoral education is offered in Science and Didactics of Mathematics.
