Thank you to Claire Harris for the update.
Have you been wondering where you could study science communication at university? Maybe some soon-to-be school leavers are interested in exploring the mix of science and people that sci comm offers?
A number of universities in Australia offer subjects and qualifications focused on science communication. These universities include:
- Australian National University
- University of New South Wales
- The University of Queensland
- University of Western Australia
- University of Adelaide.
Interestingly, the Centre for Public Awareness of Science is the longest running science communication academic centre in Australia, offering its first graduate diploma in 1986.
Do you know of any others that we’ve missed?
Have you found any Massive Open Online Courses in sci comm that you’d care to recommend? Comment below. (See an earlier article in Scope about MOOCs.)
Members may also be interested in checking out the discussion on the public LinkedIn site following a question from an undergraduate science student about what qualifications are needed to be considered a science communicator.
