This Science Communication programme from Imperial College London prepares students for a wide range of professional science communication careers in print, broadcast and new media journalism, science policy, public relations, and exhibition and design work.
Through both academic and practical courses we encourage you to develop your creative and imaginative abilities, and to produce ideas and undertake work that will communicate science, technology and medicine in fresh and more effective ways.
The course develops skills in technical practice in several communication areas through a programme of practical options.
Practical modules benefit from our TV and radio facilities, and we are fortunate to be close to the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum, which provide excellent material for museum studies work.
Due to our central London location, we have unrivalled access to many media and science organisations as well as a multitude of cultural events and workshops. This makes it easy for you to build a network of contacts.
You can also attend talks and seminars on a wide range of scientific and technical topics in the various academic departments at Imperial, and benefit from direct access to a large number of leading science and engineering research teams and individuals on campus.
The majority of the teaching is by Science Communication group staff but we also benefit from the expertise of industry professionals for some sessions.
A four- to six-week attachment or internship with a science communication organisation will enable you to gain experience of the real world of science communication, and to put into practice and develop skills and knowledge gained on the course.
You will benefit from the supervision and guidance of professional science communicators and will be able to widen your range of contacts both in the media industry and in the world of science.
