Course summary

This course is for students who want to work in the broadcast media making films, television or radio programmes. If you would prefer a course with a wider choice of study, we also offer an MSc in Science Communication. Through a mix of academic and practical modules, we will encourage you to develop your creative and intellectual abilities as a reflexive practitioner. By the end of the course, you will be able to produce thought-provoking documentary film and audio to a professional standard.

Our academic modules draw on work in the humanities and social sciences to help you think afresh about the relationship between science and society, the potentials and constraints of film and radio, and the challenges these pose for the science documentary maker. The course also develops skills in technical practice through a programme of intensive practical workshops, culminating in the production of a final documentary over the summer. The practical modules benefit from our in-house TV and radio facilities.

The course includes a work placement, normally at a broadcaster or television production company. The majority of the teaching is by Science Communication Unit staff. This is supplemented with the expertise of professionals drawn from our wide network of industry contacts. In addition to easy access to leading science and engineering research teams at Imperial itself, our central London location means that you will also be able to make the most of a wide range of volunteering opportunities, cultural events and workshops, which can help further build your network of contacts.
