This programme explores the histories of science, technology and medicine (HSTM) through a wide range of case studies, from the emergence of professional scientific disciplines such as physics and biology, to the growth of `Big Science' in the Cold war era, to the complex history of the National Health Service. We focus on the integrated understanding of HSTM through consideration of sites, institutions, and schools of thought and practice, and pay particular attention to how scientists and medics have communicated with non-specialist audiences. This course is ideal for those seeking careers involving a significant element of specialist expertise on the role of science or medicine in society. These have included museums, science centres and the heritage sector; libraries and archives; media production; journalism; specialist public relations; technical authorship and editing; and policy analyst roles.
