    Programme description

    Jointly taught with City University

    Graduates who can combine scientific literacy with the ability to communicate are at a premium in the mainstream and technical press, in scientific and technical publishing and PR. Students on this programme will benefit from Queen Mary’s scientific expertise and from City University’s experience of running highly-regarded and accredited courses in different aspects of journalism. You will be taught by both leading scientists and top-class journalists who have worked for the BBC, New Scientist and Nature.

    The programme is designed for students with a science background who wish to move into careers in the media (including print, broadcast and webbased publishing) or who are interested in combining science with marketing and PR.

    You will gain experience of editorial production, media law and journalism practice, as well as a broad grounding in science, including medical research and health, global processes and the physical and chemical sciences.
