PS5180: Writing About Global Science for International Media | C. Dreifus
Tu Th 6:10-8PM
Summer 2021 B Term
This is an interdisciplinary workshop for scientists, sustainability managers, future NGO workers, and journalists seeking skills in communicating 21st-century global science to the public. The course is designed to give students exercises and real-world experiences in producing feature stories on global science topics. While most scientists and international affairs professionals have been trained to write in the style of peer-reviewed journals, we will focus on science journalism, learning how to translate global science into accessible true stories that reach large audiences.
