In the age of social media, clickbait headlines and 'fake news', we need new means of communicating science and engaging different groups and communities.The Master of Science in Society is a cross-disciplinary programme that considers the social context and communication of science, and its relation to matauranga Maori and other forms of knowledge. It combines taught courses, research projects, and your choice of final project.
