The Minor in Science Journalism aims to produce intelligent, thoughtful, and versatile journalists and communicators who engage citizens in a democratic society, helping them make informed decisions about their communities. With a focus on the communication of scientific topics, this professional education combines hands-on writing and audiovisual production workshops with lectures and seminars that critically examine the social and political contexts in which journalism is produced.
You’ll benefit from small class sizes and state-of-the-art facilities. Engage in research-creation projects or partake in an internship practicum.
