Course description

Our MSc Science and Health Communication course is ideal if you are interested in science, technology, medicine, mathematics or engineering and want to work in the field of science and health communication.

You will develop the skills required to work in a range of sectors, including science and health-related media, science policy and filmmaking; science and health engagement, public relations, museums and science centres, science festivals, and related fields.

Developed by the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine and Manchester Institute of Innovation Research , the course features masterclasses and project support from leading professionals in a wide range of sectors, together with experienced science and health communication professionals from across the University.

You will spend time building up practical communication skills, and thinking about the broad range of challenges that science communicators face. Does science communication matter for society? Whose interests are furthered by science news? What are the ethical issues in the communication of health research? When we talk about public engagement, what kind of public do we mean?

You will consider these and other questions through insights drawn from history, innovation and policy research, media studies, and the first-hand experience of long-serving communicators, and link these to practical skills.

Teaching and learning

You will learn through a mixture of lectures, small-group seminars, discussions and practical exercises. Activities will be included in the taught elements for both individual students and groups.

You will engage with primary and secondary academic literatures, professional literatures, and mass media products about science, technology and medicine.

You will also learn at special sites of science communication, such as museums, media institutions, and public events.

We encourage participation and volunteering to help you further your own interests alongside the taught curriculum. All students will meet regularly with a student mentor from the Centre's PhD community, with a designated personal tutor from among the staff and academic supervisors for your mentored and research projects.

Applicants may informally request examples of study materials to help you test your ability to engage effectively with the course from the Course Director.

Career opportunities

This course can open up careers in a wide range of sectors, including journalism, science policy, documentary filmmaking, medical, environmental and other related campaigning and advocacy. You may also enter careers in public relations in the public and private sectors or work in museums and science centres, at science festivals, or in other public engagement fields.
