MSc in Science Communication – January 2021 start
There's never been a more important or interesting time to study science communication. This academic year, UWE Bristol Science Communication Unit's renowned MSc in Science Communication programme will start in January 2021.
The programme has been running for well over a decade and has developed an international reputation for the practical skills in science communication that its students develop, practical skills that are underpinned with theoretical knowledge. The Unit pools its expertise, resources and contacts to deliver a programme that offers excellent professional development opportunities for those already working as science communicators or those aiming to move into the field.
Our MSc in Science Communication programme was given a 100% satisfaction rating by its students in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) in the 19/20 academic year. In this survey, our students said they value the practice-focused approach of the programme that provides an opportunity to learn new skills.
This academic year, our programme will be taught using a mixture of online and in-class learning. The Science Communication Unit has extensive experience of online teaching and has developed an engaging, interactive programme of learning. Our flexible approach means that you will be able to continue studying even if circumstances change, providing you with certainty to your plans.
We provide opportunities to combine study with placements and projects hosted by organisations in the field in Bristol and elsewhere. Student loans are available for those studying the MSc full time. The course is timetabled to allow our students to fit their studies around work commitments and a 25% fee discount is available to UWE Bristol alumni to study with us.
An online open event is taking place 7-8pm on Wednesday, 4 November and you can join the session here: https://info.uwe.ac.uk/events/event.aspx?id=25308 . Alternatively, contact Programme Leader Andy Ridgway directly at Andy.Ridgway@uwe.ac.uk
