The studies provided by Communication Studies are also included in the curriculum of Master's Degree Programme in Science Communication (TIEMA).

Science Communication may be taken as a major subject leading to the M.A. degree by anyone with a Bachelor’s or higher level University Degree who has passed the entrance examination. Students with a Bachelor’s Degree from a University of Applied Sciences are also eligible applicants providing their degree is in Communications.

A total of 15 new students will be accepted into the 2-year-long (120 ECTS) Programme every second year with the next intake being in early 2017.

By learning to understand the nature of the media and the scientific community as well as the language inherent in them, the students of TIEMA will gain the ability to work as mediators between science and the media. The students will learn to think analytically, use various appliances, retrieve, manage and produce information effectively, and work independently on projects.

Students are provided with the necessary skills and knowledge to qualify for employment in scientific journalism, content production and other areas of science communication. The curriculum has been developed to allow students to pursue careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors, either as employees, freelancers or entrepreneurs.
