New Media and Science Communication

The course will explore the major aspects of the communication of science in public contexts, including the representation of science in the media and the role of science in general culture. The students will be introduced to researching new ways to excite the imagination of the public about science and to encourage informed decisions about scientific issues that will concern people in the 21st century. While writing remains the undeniable focus of this course, the students will have opportunities to develop their speaking and visual design skills in science communication.
