Quantified Self (WUQFS)

Innovative technical applications to support self-monitoring by individuals are emerging, e.g. smart watches, activity/sleep trackers, sensors. These developments have the potential to revolutionize the collection of valid dietary and lifestyle data and to support consumers in adopting and maintaining a healthy diet and active lifestyle by using self-monitoring and feedback mechanisms. Knowledge on behaviour, lifestyle, communication, intervention strategies and information technology are needed to assess opportunities and challenges. Therefore, this minor combines courses in the fields of nutrition and health research, communication science, and information technology.

Effective Communication in Life Science Contexts (WUELC)

The advanced BSc Minor Communication, Research and Practice deals with several aspects of the relation between scientific research and communication practice. In their future work, many students with a life science or social science background will be confronted with societal responses to research findings, the setting of research agenda’s in support of societal innovation, and the design of communication research as a preparation for communication planning. In this minor students come to grips with the different ways in which communication can relate to research.
