Summary

This Master’s is designed to offer the practical and theoretical training in journalism needed by those with an interest in science and environmental issues to communicate their subject to the public.

There is growing demand for science journalists who can report on issues such as health or the environment accurately and succinctly. You will have the opportunity to learn how to take scientific news and turn it into engaging stories, without resorting to sensationalism or technical jargon.

There are opportunities for you to work on community radio, student newspapers and magazines, and to participate in our professional placement scheme. Students have previously worked for BBC Focus magazine, New Scientist and the Vegan Society.

You may also have the opportunity to hear from leading names in the journalism industry. Previous speakers include Channel 4 Science Editor Tom Clarke, naturalist and broadcaster Chris Packham and Sense About Science founder Lord Taverne.

Students on this programme are expected to complete an assessed work placement as part of this course. Students are responsible for their travel, accommodation and general living costs while undertaking work placements.
