Graduate Studies Taster Event, CHSTM

March 6, 2019, University of Manchester

The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM) at the University of Manchester in the UK will be holding an event for potential Master’s students on Wednesday 6 March 2019.

Events during the afternoon will introduce our three taught Master’s (MSc) pathways:

We will begin at 13.00 with an optional historical tour of scientific sites on campus, led by current students. Meet at the entrance to the Manchester Museum on Coupland Street.

Our talks and question-and-answer sessions will run from 14.00 till 16.00 in Coupland Building 3 Room LG.124 (see Maps and travel).

  • Starting at 14.00: introductions to History of Science, Technology and Medicine and Medical Humanities
  • Starting at 15.00: introduction to Science Communication

Talks will cover course structures and content, the application process, and career opportunities, including progression from taught Master’s study to PhD. Current and former graduate students will also be available to answer your questions and chat informally about their experience.

The talks do not cover graduate research (PhD and MPhil), but potential research supervisors will be available to answer any questions at various times during the day.
