Science Communication | Macaulay Honors College

Science Communication

Instructor: Emily Rice
Wednesdays, 1:00 – 3:40pm
Macaulay Honors College, Online
Course Code: MHC 362

The goal of the course is to engage students in science communication by defining, describing, motivating, and evaluating existing examples of science communication and ultimately producing their own science communication project. The course is designed for students with a range of science backgrounds, from casual interest to professional participation. Instructor-provided content will focus on astronomy & physics topics, but students will be empowered to explore communication in all STEM fields, including biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, computer science, technology, and interdisciplinary areas. Students will work together during class to understand and contextualize the course content and provide feedback to one another during the development of their science communication projects. All students will interact with and contribute to the expanding universe of cutting-edge science communication.

We will not just think about science communication, but actually work to join the conversation and communicate science to the public.
