Science Communication & Public Engagement

The field of science communication and public engagement with science is currently enjoying unprecedented growth. This is driven by a greater need to demonstrate the impact of publicly funded research, the need for research to be valued, increased government scrutiny and a desire for a stronger evidence base for policy. Many career opportunities are emerging at the interface between scientific research and various public groups. You will experience a variety of science communication and public engagement issues and methodologies. In the process, you will develop critical thinking skills and self-evaluation skills through reflective practice. The learning gained from one course is transferable to other courses, thus ensuring interconnection across the programme. This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Academies.
