Both the MSc in Science Communication and the MSc in Science Media Production combine academic analysis with the development of practical and intellectual skills. We regard theory and practice as equally important and believe that combined effort and excellence in both areas are necessary for success in professional science communication. Students are encouraged to develop their creative and imaginative abilities; to produce ideas and undertake work that will communicate science, technology and medicine in fresh and effective ways. These courses are very hard work but students also have great fun.
Applicants should read the material describing the objectives and purposes of each course carefully before choosing the one which best matches their needs.
Graduates from both courses are highly successful in finding jobs in the media and other areas of professional science communication.
MSc Science Media Production
For those who want to train to work specifically in the broadcast media or film, and who prefer to undertake a production project rather than a research dissertation.
