The Masters Programme in Science, Medical and Environmental Communication (MCC) from IDEC-UPF begins today its twentieth edition. Twenty-two participants have registered this year, plus fifteen people more on the online version that began in October. After Easter, students from the graduate programme imparted in Buenos Aires (Argentina) will join the online participants in order to complete their degree.
For the moment, the amount of registered students is 37, a number that breaks the last 20 years of participation records.
The latest MCC evaluations show that 94% of those who were enrolled in its last edition recommend this professional master, directed by Vladimir de Semir and Gema Revuelta. The programme teaches about the broad field of scientific journalism, corporate communication, museology and medical and environmental communication.
The MCC has been possible thanks to the economical support of Novartis and Sandoz, who gave tuition bonuses for students. In its later editions, “la Caixa” Foundation has also given economical support and has allowed the organization and consolidation of Campus Gutenberg, among other activities of analysis and promotion of scientific culture throughout the academic year.
