This training aims to provide students with skills in structuring / managing communication of scientific content and valuing scientific culture.


The relationship between the University and its contexts, transfer activities, the societal impact of science and the need for careful information management require communicative specificities that will be analyzed in this course.

The Science management, while acquiring mechanisms for the administration of resources, processes and measures, in a rational and appropriate way, needs reflection for the creation of conditions for innovation, production and transmission / transfer of knowledge. 

These are the aspects that justify the need for this postgraduate training, which aims to contribute to training specialists in the field, capable of managing communication processes, reflecting on scientific culture in society, and communicating science appropriately, not only among peers ( scientific publications), but, above all, in contexts with supports and for different audiences.

The post-graduation is associated with the Arts and Communication Research Centre (CIAC) and intends to create interaction with all UAlg's R&D centers with regard to communication and science management.
