Science in Society as a specialist study
Science in Society provides a useful experience for students continuing their education alongside a wide range of other subjects. It specifically provides a sound basis for specific progression into university courses such as Science communication, Science and the media and Philosophy of science. The mix of experience, including problem based learning and consideration of relevant issues, also makes the course a good additional qualification for candidates seeking entry to medical and similar professional courses.
