Program Description

Build the theoretical foundations and practical experiences needed for a meaningful career in science communication. Join the first and only program of its kind in Canada that trains people in this rapidly growing field in partnership with an industry-leading science centre, Science North. Learn the theory and best practices underlying strong communication in this immersive 9-12 month experience. Discover the challenges of effectively communicating scientific information and the issues involving science in society. Apply your knowledge of design and rhetorical theory, social and traditional media, exhibit development, and research methods to solve the current issues with communicating science-related topics to non-experts.
