Concordia's Department of Journalism is offering its third intensive and experiential summer school to challenge participants to rethink how science is communicated with society.
Throughout the two-week intensive, blended summer school, international graduate students will come to Concordia to debate and experiment with the future of communicating on health topics.
With an emphasis on robust, evidence-based science journalism and multimedia techniques, Projected Futures 3 will spark interdisciplinary experimentation to contemplate and create new forms of scientific storytelling.
Top science and health journalists will help lay the foundations of evidence-based science journalism for the school. By week’s end, participants will be challenged to explore new forms of scientific storytelling. Students emerge knowledgeable and creatively primed to undertake digital first, open discipline, experimental science journalism.
What will you learn?
Projected Futures 3 will provide students with:
An intensive introduction to science journalism with no previous knowledge required;
Production skills workshops for multimedia platforms such as video, audio and social media;
A collaborative experimental challenge;
Improvement as a communicator;
A projected journalism future.
Participants will be selected through the demonstration of their interest in the fundamentals of science journalism and new forms of scientific storytelling (Letter of Intent), their current achievements (CV), and whether they seek financial aid to attend.
Fellowships will be considered for top applicants.
This summer school has rolling admissions and will continue to admit students until it is full. Applications are reviewed as they are received. This page will be updated once the school is full.
