  • JRN 513: Sci Sci Comm

    Graduate 1 credit

    The U.S. National Academies has paid increased attention to the "science of science communication," an interdisciplinary area of social science and humanities research and scholarship that spans a range of disciplines, including communication, psychology, decision science, mass communication, risk communication, health communication, political science, sociology, and science and technology studies, history, and others. This course is designed as an introductory survey course for graduate students in science, biomedical, engineering, and health disciplines to this interdisciplinary field. The key goal is to provide context on science communication research that can inform students' science communication practices. Specifically targeted to students who are not communication researchers, this essential overview will help students understand the importance of linking theory with practice when they communicate about their own research. The course is designed to complement applied science communication coursework offered by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science in the School of Journalism.

  • JRN 534: Comm Sci Digital

    Graduate 3 credits

    JRN 565 OR (JRN 501 + JRN 503 + JRN 513)

    Science and health information increasingly travels by digital media, as new ways emerge for scientists to communicate directly with the public, without the intermediaries of press or public relations. In this online course, students will learn how to be a more effective and engaged online communicator, so that their science can reach a greater audience in more meaningful ways. Students will also learn about the great potential and perils of social media, as they learn to think critically about the broader issues surrounding this medium. This course gives students a practical and hands-on approach to teach them how to use digital "tools of the trade" such as blogs, video, audio/podcasts, and social media platforms to foster two-way communication with different segments of the public, including colleagues in other disciplines. Using improvisational techniques combined with message design strategies for structuring content, students will create, practice and hone their science communication skills through this dynamic and interactive online course.
