Course content

Communicating science is a challenging topic, where you may need to explain the structure of a leaf to a seven year old one day, and report the very latest research to the world via scientific journals the next. These both rely on subject knowledge and an ability to effectively communicate complex scientific theories to others.

This MSc will help you to build your subject knowledge of Chemistry while also enhancing your ability to communicate science, with a focus on writing for scientific publication or communication in the media. You’ll gain a Master’s level education in technical chemistry modules and develop key research skills by completing a research project in one of our world-class research groups, using state-of-the-art equipment.

By the end of the course you’ll have advanced chemical knowledge and the skills to prepare you for a career in research, scientific writing, science education or science communication.
