Science communication programs at The University of Western Australia (UWA), include a BSc (Communication Studies), Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and research degrees. Strong links with both the science communication community and scientific research community are vital to the success of our program. Because of space constraints, this paper gives two examples: 1) staff external to the University who supervise student projects in a practical work setting and 2) University staff who provide subject material for a display assignment. Other collaborations not discussed in this paper include guest lectures, press release and fact sheet assignments, case studies and research projects.

Because of space constraints, this paper gives two examples: 1) staff external to the University who supervise student projects in a practical work setting and 2) University staff who provide subject material for a display assignment.
