Reasons to take this postgraduate programme

  1. Acquire a general knowledge of the sector
    Hundreds of institutions research in all areas of knowledge, and thousands of companies invest in innovation in their processes and the incorporation of new technologies. All of them have the need to communicate to society the work they do.
  2. Find job opportunities
    In the field of science and technology, there is still a moderately occupied professional space that offers new job opportunities daily. This translates into a growing demand for journalists and communicators trained in this specialty. The postgraduate programme may be the beginning of a professional path. In it, students will expand their network of contacts. And for those already in the sector, it offers training that enhances skills.
  3. Train in the use of artificial intelligence
    Students will learn narrative techniques to bring science closer to citizens and the AI tools applicable to communication. It will also provide additional training with an ethical perspective on approaching science, with special attention to combating misinformation.
  4. Active and prestigious faculty
    Classes are taught by journalists, communicators, university professors, and scientists from the best Spanish research centres and the most important technological companies in Spain.
  5. Company visits
    As part of the training, visits to some of the main research centres and technological facilities located in the metropolitan area of Barcelona will be conducted.

Comunicació de la Ciència, la Tecnologia i la Innovació


The postgraduate programme in Science, Technology, and Innovation Communication provides specialised training for those who wish to pursue this activity as a continuation of their undergraduate studies, whether in Journalism or other branches of knowledge. There is a growing demand for professionals who can contribute to better informing society about scientific advancements, the opportunities they offer, and the associated risks.

Furthermore, digitalisation is transforming communication paradigms. Today, artificial intelligence applications, content distribution platforms, social networks, and new narrative forms based on interactivity are creating a genuine revolution for which we must be prepared.

Moving away from scientific language to make new discoveries understandable, assessing their impact, and combating misinformation are also ways to make knowledge accessible to all citizens. Barcelona is a strategic location for science, as evidenced by the major research centres and scientific-technical facilities in its metropolitan area. As a student in this postgraduate programme, you will have the opportunity to closely explore these entities and understand how communication unfolds in their environment.


  • Empower professionals from different fields in the communication of science, technology, and innovation.
  • Provide interdisciplinary training that allows for the verification of information accuracy.
  • Promote social responsibility by placing individuals at the centre of communicative activities.

With these studies, the student will be able to...

  1. Communicate scientific advancements and their potential applications and social implications with the appropriate evidence.
  2. Identify and position actors within the national and international scientific and technological ecosystem.
  3. Develop professionally within science journalism, both in media outlets and institutions or companies.
  4. Acquire knowledge of artificial intelligence tools applicable to scientific communication, as well as interactive and transmedia narratives.
  5. Assess the social impact and ethical components in communication within the areas covered in the postgraduate programme.
