The Science Education & Communication program bridges the gap between science, technology and society, forming the link in today’s knowledge based world
Science and technology are two of the most powerful drivers of today’s society. However, without a constant flow of new scientific talent, it is not possible to maintain our current technology-dependent society. And as the importance of technology grows, so does the need for clear communication to decision makers in government and industry, to the media, and to the general public about science.
The Science Education and Communication program prepares scientists to fill key roles as communicators linking the world of science and technology to the rest of society, and as educators teaching young people about science and technology.
The Science Education and Communication program explores in greater depth the scientific and engineering topics. Students are introduced to education and science communication topics. The program provides students with the knowledge and skills to convey important messages to other scientists and to a lay public. Graduates will possess the skills to design and deliver effective communication and education in the science and technology domain.
The Science Education and Communication program has two tracks:
- Science Education
- Science Communication
Core subjects: Advanced Level Science and Technology; Knowledge Transfer; Design Methodology; Design Practice; Social Science Research Methodology; Education track: education theory and practice; Science Communication track: science communication theory and practice; mass communication; communication strategy & policy; science marketing; science communication research.
