Science Communication MSc

Course Description

Course description

MSc in Science Communication combines professional practice, policy studies and cross-disciplinary theory and skills, to offer an academically stimulating experience and a solid grounding for a career. This MSc is appropriate for students from a range of backgrounds. It functions both as an advanced study course for experienced practitioners, and as a conversion route from other backgrounds such as undergraduate science, social policy, and non-science public engagement roles.

Developed by academic staff from The University of Manchester's Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM) and Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, the programme will feature masterclasses and project support from leading professionals in print, broadcast and online journalism, museums and science centres, public policy and advocacy, specialist public relations and editorial services, project and event management, together with experienced science communicators from across the University.
