For all of our postgraduate degrees (with the exception of the PhD), students’ coursework, creative projects and academic theses can be tailored to one of three technical areas – Science and Natural History Filmmaking (SNHF), Creative Non-Fiction Writing in Science (CNFW), or Science in Society (SSOC). An unendorsed option is available for students who are undecided, prefer a more generalised degree in science communication, or whose professional interests overlap between areas.

Science in Society

From the internet to installations, you will learn how to communicate science in the digital realm or in the physical world of museums and the like. Maybe you'll develop an exhibition, an art installation, a digital platform, an act of in-depth research .... or, just maybe, it'll be something you haven't even dreamed of yet... an invention that moves the masses.
