In studying science communication with us, you examine how complex and uncertain information is communicated between various social groups such as research scientists and policy-makers, science writers and broadcasters and the general public. You also consider the many cultural, ethical and social implications of science’s growing role and of the increasing concern with individual and public health.
You are welcome if you come from a background in natural sciences, humanities or social sciences. However, most students to date have come from the biological sciences.
