This Friday the 3rd of February is the start of the IV edition of the Online Master in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra – Barcelona School of Management (UPF-BSM), directed by Gema Revuelta. The aim of this master is to prepare the participants to generate, manage and transmit scientific knowledge and the ideas and opportunities that stem from its application and from the associated technologies.
Throughout the course, the necessary tools will be available to the student for analyzing different scientific information sources, for understanding the methods of communication of this knowledge and for learning about the relationships between the professional world, the technological industries and society. In the workshops and sessions, special attention is paid to the impact that scientific discoveries have on people as well as the ethical problems associated to the whole process of knowledge management. On the other hand, there are also more specific workshops such as those specialized in medical communication, environmental communication, museology or institutional communication, one of the main job opportunities nowadays.
Besides, the master collaborates with the Studies Center on Science, Communication and Society of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (CCS-UPF), also directed by Gema Revuelta. Thanks to the collaboration of the Obra Social “la Caixa”, the students can participate in the Campus Gutenberg, a science communication and outreach conference, in which every year more than 300 scientific communicators and experts in scientific culture participate from all over Spain and Europe.
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. The master disposes of a specific budget aimed at giving partial funding for the enrolment of those students who ask for it.
