Course content

Do you love science but know that a career at the lab bench is not for you? An MA in Science Communication is the perfect step forward to broaden your skills and career options while developing your passion for science.

The Science Communication MA at Kent is unique in that it includes both practical and critical aspects of the subject. You engage with a variety of media, including print, audio-visual and web-based presentation.

You are taught by lecturers in medical and science humanities, and by scientists. These include nationally recognised teachers, a blogger for a national newspaper, museum experts and regulars on national media.

Previous students have come from France, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Taiwan and more, bringing international perspectives and experiences to the group. For more information, including samples of student work and alumni profiles, see the Centre for the History of the Sciences blog or follow the Centre on Twitter.

Information for international students

Please see our International website for entry requirements by country and other relevant information. Due to visa restrictions, international fee-paying students cannot study part-time unless undertaking a distance or blended-learning programme with no on-campus provision.

English language entry requirements

The University requires all non-native speakers of English to reach a minimum standard of proficiency in written and spoken English before beginning a postgraduate degree. Certain subjects require a higher level.
