The Master's in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication, MCC (Máster en Comunicación Científica, Médica y Ambiental) from IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain) was offered for its first time in 1995, being the first of this type in Spain. In February 2015, this master program will celebrate its 20th edition. Apart from the modality “face to face”, since 2013 UPF also offers an online modality of this master program (in October 2014 it will start its second edition). UPF is a Spanish public university. More than 500 people have coursed this master degree, most of them thanks to a partial scholarship from Fundación La Caixa (the largest charitable foundation in Spain, created by Caixa Bank). MCC is a professional master program. Participants, that come from different backgrounds (scientists, journalists, medical doctors, public relations, and others), at the end of this program are ready to become excellent professionals and work in different fields: science journalism, science museology, institutional science communication, science communication through new formats, etc.
