Bristol, University of the West of England
The course focuses on practical skill development and offers students the opportunity to study both how to take science directly to the public and ways of communicating science through the media; introductory modules provide a broad theoretical underpinning in issues such as the rationale for the public understanding of science, understanding the audience, the role of the media in society, communication theory and models of informal learning; specialist modules cover practical skills related to taking science directly to the public and new approaches to science communication (including digital media, science writing and broadcasting); the weaving together of theory and practice ensures that the award is both intellectually stimulating and provides the skills that employers seek.
Honours degree (minimum 2.2) from a UK university or equivalent.
Core modules: Science and society; science, the public and media; plus option modules: broadcasting science; new opportunities in science communication; hands-on science communication; writing science; project.
