The Master in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication will prepare you to produce, manage, and transmit scientific knowledge
and the ideas and opportunities that derive from its application, and from its related technologies.
Throughout the course, you will analyse the main sources of scientific information, their forms of transmission, the nature of the relationships between
the expert world, technological industries, and society, how these impact discoveries in people and the ethical problems associated with the whole process
of how knowledge is handled. The module focused on medical communications will provide you with a detailed understanding on how medical and health knowledge
is communicated. In the field of environmental communications you will analyse the major environmental issues and the challenges of biotechnology and
genetic engineering. In addition, thanks to the collaboration of "la Caixa" Social Foundation, you will be able to participate in the Campus Gutenberg,
which involves more than 300 scientific communicators and experts in scientific culture from Spain and Europe each year.
The Master in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication is aimed at university graduates who wish to become scientific
communication professionals, a field with wide applications and professional careers.
