The Master in Science Education and Communication was conceived by the Unit for the Teaching of Science, in strong symbiotic complicity with the several Departments of Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto.

By investing in a training with a strong component of Science Education and Communication, always valuing the basic scientific areas (as it can be seen from the specific options listed in the curricular plan), it will produce highly competent and competitive human capital, capable of transitions to a successful career, both at the school and academic environments, and in institutions that directly (Museums and Science Centres) and indirectly (Communication Centres of R&D units) are linked to the communication of science.
