I took the ‘Science and Communication for Development’ module as part of Imperial College London’s MSc in Science Communication. I thought it was an excellent module that really deepened my understanding of development.
Sustainable development had been a long term interest for me – indeed I specialised in sustainability when I studied environmental science as an undergraduate, and I had wondered, before starting, if the course would fail to challenge me. In fact, however, I found the module really enlightening. The learning approach allowed us to explore our own understanding of these issues whilst supporting us in critically examining approaches to development and offering complimentary perspectives from the main and not so mainstream. I actually thought this was the best module during my masters and often joked to my coursemates that all scientists could benefit from exploring these themes before they’re let loose on the wider world.
