Are you a STEM graduate student who wants to improve their communication skills? There is still room in Writing 259, "Science Communication," which is offered this Spring. Read on and see the flyer below for more information.

This course, offered by Prof. Doug Bradley, focuses on enhancing the delivery, understanding, retention, and engagement of scientific information for various target audiences, particularly the general public. This course provides students within the scientific, engineering, technological and mathematical (STEM) disciplines a foundation in science communication practices that explain, persuade, describe, and entertain. Coursework focuses on composition, public speaking, graphics designs and numeric representations for creating effective written works, talks, podcasts, blogs, videos, press releases, policy briefs, posters, and reports about scientific topics. Students will learn how to craft scientific stories that are accurate, realistic and compelling.
