School of Communications

 

M.Sc. in Science Communication

The programme explores social issues in science and technology, and the communications and controversies surrounding them. It will ensure that you have a good grasp of the social significance of science and you are capable of reflecting critically on the place of science and technology in society.

This MSc caters for students with diverse backgrounds in the natural sciences, the social sciences and humanities. By bringing these students together, the programme stimulates interaction, encouraging the different groups to reflect more fully on the contribution that the others make to the development of the total cultural fabric.

Although not primarily concerned with training in technical communications, the programme does include some practically oriented modules.

Whether or not you have a scientific background, if you are interested in a career in science media, marketing, policy, or specialist areas in communicating health, environment, IT or risk, the MSc in Science Communication is for you.
