Chemistry with Scientific Writing MSc

How to communicate science is a challenging topic; you may need to explain the structure of leaf to a seven year old one day, and report the very lastest research to the world via scientific journals the next.

Both rely not only on subject knowledge but also the ability to effectively communicate often complex scientific theories to others.

This MSc aims to give you:

the English Language Skills necessary to communicate science, and the ability to effectively apply these skills;advanced training and teaching in a wide range of chemistry-based topics;research experience (using state-of-the-art equipment) through the completion of a research-based project based in one of Warwick's first class research groups.

The MSc consists of:

Three core modules which focus on how to write scientific articles and reports, and how to effectively communicate your findings to different audiences.A research project, based in the Department of Chemistry. A key part of the project will be learning how most effectively report your results.A choice of modules (usually 5) from the wide range on offer in the Department of Chemistry. You can select modules to suit your interests and skills requirements.

Warwick use the Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) to express credit for each module of learning the student undertakes. The Chemistry with Scientific Writing MSc consists of 180 CATS in total.

Scientific Research and Communication MSc

This MSc combines top quality English Language teaching from the Centre for Applied Linguistics, with advanced scientific teaching and research from the highly rated Faculty of Science at the University of Warwick.

There is a large range of modules on offer (>50) and subject to timetabling constraints the choice, depending on your scientific skills and interests, is entirely up to you.

This MSc aims to give you:

The English Language Skills necessary to communicate science, and the ability to effectively apply these skills; research experience (using state-of-the-art equipment) through the completion of a research-based project based in one of Warwick's first class research groups; an excellent learning environment in which to acquire the skills required to be a successful university level research scientist; advanced knowledge in an area of scientific research, and the ability to write coherently about this research; the skills required for a career in research, scientific writing, science education or science communication, with a particular emphasis on preparing for a career in science.
