MSc Core Module in Science Communication


This course explores the structure, meanings, and implications of science communication. We will look at the contexts in which science communication occurs. We investigate the motivations of and constraints on people involved in producing information about science for non-professional audiences while analyzing the functions of public communication of science and technology. We will also try to link knowledge about the public communication of science and technology to research in communication more broadly, in order to develop new knowledge about science communication.
