About us:
Part of the University of Otago in Dunedin, a modern, bustling university city located on the south-easterly shores of the beautiful South Island of New Zealand, the Centre for Science Communication is one of the world’s largest postgraduate facilities for the teaching, research, and practice of communicating science to the general public.

The filmmaking course is run in association with Natural History New Zealand (one of the world’s largest producers of documentaries) and taught by award-winning filmmakers who are some of the best in the business.

Staff in the Science Writing and Science in Society streams have strong connections with the publishing industry and the GLAM sector. Films, exhibitions, books and other projects produced by our students have won many awards, including the industry's most prestigious.

At any one time, we have about 60 postgraduate students undertaking one of the following qualifications:

  *   PhD: a three-year, research-based degree focused on a specific, hypothesis-driven aspect of science communication.
  *   Master of Science Communication (MSciComm): a two-year, practice-based degree in one of three areas (filmmaking, writing, and science in society). Our MSciComm degree usually involves both a creative and academic thesis component but can be a more traditional 100% academic thesis.
  *   Postgraduate Diploma in Science Communication: a one-year intensive coursework qualification.
  *   Postgraduate Certificate in Science Communication: a one-semester coursework qualification.

If you have questions, please contact me.

Kind regards, Nancy
Professor Nancy Longnecker
