Completion Requirements and Grades
This section describes the requirements and results of the CoSTEP regular, elective and training courses.
The Science Communicator Training Program “certificate of completion” will be awarded to those who have mastered all the compulsory subjects of the regular course, elective course and training course. Lectures, seminars, practical training, practical activities and research are considered to have been completed if the following requirements are met.
*The science communicator training program is not a regular course in graduate school, so you cannot obtain credits or degrees.
